Truckload Capacity Slowly Returns to Spot Market

Spot Rates Continue Seasonal Decline

Jul 15 – 21 – Truckload capacity has been tight all year, but that’s eased gradually from the June peak. The national load-to-truck ratios declined last week for dry vans, reefers, and flatbeds, taking some pressure off what have been historically high spot rates. The national average van rate declined 5¢ to $2.33 per mile, but that’s still higher than the June average. The national reefer rate also dropped 5¢, while the average flatbed rate dipped 1¢.

Van and Reefer Rates Hit New Highs

Flatbed Demand Shows Signs of Easing

Jul 1 – 7 – Freight rates reached record heights at the end of June, only to skyrocket even higher during the July 4th holiday week. The national average van rate rose to a new record of $2.45 per mile, and the national reefer rate jumped to $2.77 per mile. The national flatbed rate held steady at $2.82 per mile, but the flatbed load-to-truck ratio declined for the fourth week in a row. Load-to-truck ratios declined for vans and reefers, as well, due partly to holiday vacation schedules.
