Ratios Rise After the Holiday   Last update: 6/7/2016 – Next update: 6/14/2016

May 29 – June 4  – Spot market rates continued their upward trend after Memorial Day. Last week was a 4-day work week, which would normally account for a 20% decline in load posts, but load availability was only down 9% last week. That led to higher load-to-truck ratios for vans, reefers, and flatbeds.
