Surprise! July Van Rates Exceed June Averages

Demand Rises at Month’s End

Jul 24 – 30 – More loads were available as July ended, so load-to-truck ratios rose for vans, reefers and flatbeds. Van rates lost a penny and reefer rates dropped 3¢ per mile for the week, but flatbeds added 1¢. The big surprise: the monthly average rate for vans in July topped June levels by 2¢.
