Spot rates continue to head south

National Spot Rates: Van, Flatbed, Reefer
Dry van and reefer spot rates have dropped around 6 cents per mile each week for the last month.

April 11 – 17 – Declining spot rates in Spring shouldn’t surprise anyone in trucking, but it’s the pace of the jaw-dropping decline that got everyone’s attention. Dry van and reefer spot rates have dropped by 20% since the start of the year, as load-to-truck ratios last seen in 2018 emerge. Equipment posts, however, are now back to 2019 and 2020 levels, as the spot market continues to soften rapidly.
