Average van rate falls below $2 per mile
Cheaper fuel and extra capacity keep rates down

Jan 20 – 26 – The national average van rate dropped below the $2 per mile mark for the first time since September 2017. Falling fuel surcharges and increased capacity in the spot market are putting downward pressure on rates, as average reefer and flatbed prices also moved lower.

Rates drop as capacity comes back strong
Van, reefer, flatbed prices decline

Jan 6 – 12 – After two holiday weeks, truckload capacity came back strong last week, which knocked down national average rates for dry van, reefers and flatbeds. Freight moves now are less urgent, and the e-commerce and retail holiday season is over. Falling fuel surcharges are also contributing to the decline in rates.

Christmas capacity crunch raises rates
Holiday vacations affect truck availability

Dec 23 – 29 – Less freight moved last week, as businesses shut down for Christmas. But for the loads that did need to move, freight brokers and shippers had a hard time finding trucks, as evidenced by the soaring load-to-truck ratios. That capacity crunch pushed rates higher for dry van, refrigerated and flatbed freight.
