Connecticut is considered part of the New York metro area, and therefore is extremely accessible due to the large number of roads and railways through the state. Although Connecticut has some agricultural and industrial output, many residents of the state commute to New York for work. As there are far more goods moving into the state than going out, Connecticut freight shipping out of the state can almost always be found for low prices. The climate is mild and the roads are well maintained, although traffic can slow Connecticut shipping down somewhat. LTL shipping is usually affordable due to the volume of goods that move in, out, and through Connecticut.
