National Van Rate Hits New High

Capacity Loosens, but Shortages Remain

Jun 17 – 23 – Capacity continues to return slowly to the spot market, but trucks are still in short supply in many parts of the country. That’s kept freight rates high, and the national average van rate pushed into uncharted territory at $2.31 per mile. The national reefer rate remained at a record high of $2.70 per mile. The national flatbed rate dipped 1¢, and while demand remains elevated, the load-to-truck ratio dropped to its lowest level since late February.

Vans, Reefers, Flatbeds Add 1¢

Jun 10 – 16 – Although some capacity returned to the spot market after the Roadcheck inspection blitz, trucks were still hard to find last week, pushing prices upward for all three equipment types. The national average van rate increased 1¢ per mile, matching the record high set in early January. The average reefer rate also inched up 1¢, a penny below its January peak. And the national flatbed rate hit another record high, gaining 1¢ to reach $2.82 per mile.

June Poised for Record Rates

Roadcheck Adds Pressure on Already Tight Capacity

Jun 3 – 9 – Spot market demand has exploded in June. Capacity was already tight from Memorial Day week, so the effect from last week’s Roadcheck inspection blitz was even more pronounced this year. The national average van rate jumped 10¢ per mile, and is now just below its January peak. The average reefer rate surged 14¢, and the national flatbed rate hit another record high, increasing 6¢ to $2.81 per mile.

Capacity Remains Tight Heading Into June

Memorial Day Leads to Higher Rates

May 27 – Jun 2 – Demand outpaced capacity during the week of Memorial Day. The scarcity of trucks, along with rising fuel costs, led to higher spot market rates in each segment. The national averages for both van rates and reefer rates each increased 4¢ per mile, while the national flatbed rate continued to add to its record high, climbing another 2¢ to $2.75 per mile.
