Flatbed Rates Slip 3¢

Sep 4 – 10 – Van rates held onto the previous week’s gains, and reefer rates rose another 1¢ last week, but flatbeds slipped 3¢ per mile, as a national average. Load-to-truck ratios remained stable for vans, but the reefer ratio declined and flatbed demand increased relative to capacity.
