Refer rates also continue to cool

March 28 – April 3 – Spot linehaul rates have plunged in recent weeks just as diesel prices skyrocket. Even though dry van spot rates dropped another 5 cents per mile last week, the reefer market is cooling the fastest. After dropping 6 cents per mile the week prior, reefer spot rates decreased another 7 cents last week. In contrast, the flatbed market is heating up right on cue and linehaul spot rates are currently running around 26 cents per mile higher than this time last year.
