Jan 6 – 12 – After two holiday weeks, truckload capacity came back strong last week, which knocked down national average rates for dry van, reefers and flatbeds. Freight moves now are less urgent, and the e-commerce and retail holiday season is over. Falling fuel surcharges are also contributing to the decline in rates.
