Feb 17 – 23 – Rates continue their seasonal slide, but the pace of the decline has slowed. The national average van and reefer rate was down just a penny, while the average flatbed rate took its first upturn in six weeks, rising 1¢ per mile. Freight volumes in February are up compared to January, and rising volumes should reignite rates during March.

National average rates were down for vans, reefers and flatbeds. National load-to-truck ratios fell for vans and reefers last week, but ticked up for flatbeds, as temperatures improved following the polar vortex.
