Van Load-to-Truck Ratio Soars

May 28 – Jun 3 – National average rates increased for vansreefers and flatbeds, with rates for reefers and flatbeds hitting their highest marks in nearly two years. Load and truck posts on DAT load boards declined due to the 4-day work week following Memorial Day, yet the van load-to-truck ratio hit its highest level since 2014.
