National Flatbed Rate Holds Steady

Feb 12 – 18 – Spot market volumes have stabilized as of late. Load-to-truck ratios were up for each trailer type last week, though it’s not yet enough to put pressure on rates. The national average for van and reefer rates dipped another 1¢, but the national flatbed rate held steady.

The chart above depicts national average spot market rates for the past four weeks, including fuel surcharges. Weekly rate snapshots reflect averages for the month to-date, from DAT RateView.
