National Flatbed Rate Adds 1¢

Jan 29 – Feb 4 – There was an uptick in spot market volumes last week, which followed a couple weeks of declining load posts. Van and reefer rates continued to decline during the slow season, but the national averages for each trailer type remain higher than they were in February 2016. The national flatbed rate rose 1¢ per mile.
