Spot rates look to close the year at record highs

Dec. 6 – 12 – Following the volatile freight market in the first half of the year punctuated by the Polar Vortex and Roadcheck Week, the second half of 2021 has seen a lot more seasonality, albeit at a much higher altitude. Load posts on the DAT Load Board are currently 51% higher compared to the same week last year and almost triple the volume seen in 2018. Spot rates for all three equipment types combined are 16% — or $0.44/mile — higher compared to this time last year.
