Van and Reefer Rates Hover Near Peak Levels

Nov 5 – 11 – Strong demand and rising fuel prices have kept spot market rates at or near peak levels for the season. The national average van rate dipped 1¢ to $2.06 per mile, only 3¢ below the post-hurricane peak of early October. Reefer rates are back up to a high of $2.37 per mile, driven by a pre-Thanksgiving rush. For flatbeds, a downward trend was interrupted last week by a 1¢ increase that partially offset rising fuel costs.

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