Description: Ocean freight rates to Pacific Rim markets for softwood logs, cants, and wood pulp from Alaska were compared with rates from the Puget Sound area by using analysis of covariance and analysis of variance techniques. The results did not support the hypothesis that lower freight rates for Alaska result from shorter shipping distances. In many cases, ocean freight rates for Alaska are higher than ocean freight rates from Puget Sound to the same markets. When Alaska rates were lower, distance did not seem to be the reason for the lower rates.
