Freight rates slow to rebound

Mar 18 – 24 – The bomb cyclone rerouted supply chains two weeks ago, and flooding continues in the Midwest. Freight markets have been slow to rebound, and a major tank fire in Houston added further disruption last week. Volumes are still strong compared to last year, but extra capacity has kept national average rates in check for vans, reefers and flatbeds in March.

Trendlines shows a weekly snapshot of the month-to-date for national average rates from DAT RateView. National average spot market rates for the past four months, including fuel surcharges, are shown in the three graphs, above.

Truckload rates halt 8-week slide

Mar 3 – 9 – After falling for eight straight weeks, van and reefer rates are stabilizing. The national average van rate held steady, and van volumes are actually up compared to last year at this time. The national averages for reefers and flatbeds each added 1¢, but many of the top reefer lanes are still waiting for the spring surge.

National average spot market rates for the past four weeks, including fuel surcharges, are shown in the three graphs, above. Weekly rate snapshots reflect averages for the month to-date, from DAT RateView.
