July on pace to beat May numbers

July 22 – 28 – As expected, spot market rates have dipped this month, but volumes and pricing for July are still on track to beat May’s numbers. Van rates were mostly stable last week, with upticks in load counts out of key markets like Los Angeles, while volumes out of California also gave reefers a lift. Flatbed rates peaked early in July.

National Spot Rates: Van, Flatbed, Reefer

Post-holiday prices drop for truckload freight

Jul 8 – 14 – There was a significant uptick in spot market activity last week, with a full workforce returning after a break for Fourth of July. But with the holiday in the rear-view mirror, there’s also less urgency for truckload shipments. That led to declining van, reefer, and flatbed rates in many parts of the country.
