What is US Domestic Shipping?

U.S. domestic shipping involves the movement of cargo between states, regions, or localities. It encompasses various transportation modes, including truckload shipping, less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping, intermodal transportation, air freight, and rail freight, among others. 

Domestic shipping can also refer to transports over water to states like Hawaii and Alaska as well as the territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, and others. It isn’t limited to the continental lower 48, but those needing shipping to or within those regions are likely to need brokerage services that specifically operate there.
