Texas is a large and very busy state with international ports, agriculture, and heavy manufacturing all over the state. The terrain varies from desert to forest, but most is fairly flat and makes trucking easy. Texas freight shipping is quite affordable due to the high volume of goods moving in, out, and through the state. LTL is also inexpensive and easy to find due to the busy shipping industry. Railroads are extensive and an efficient way to move Texas freight easily. Mild winters also increase freight shipping efficiency. Overall, freight shipping in and out of Texas is quite cost effective, although inbound shipping can usually be found for lower freight rates.
