Van and Reefer Rates Drop 2¢, But Remain Strong

Flatbed Rates Recover 2¢

Sep 11 – 17 – Spot market freight trends were out of sync last week. Load-to-truck ratios held steady for vans and reefers, but rates fell 2¢ per mile for both trailer types. Rates are still strong for the season, however. Flatbed rates and ratios recovered, on the other hand, at a time of year when those indicators typically decline.
