Thanksgiving Rush Boosts Rates for Vans and Reefers

Nov 19 – 25 – As last-minute Thanksgiving freight moved to stores nationwide, the average reefer rate rose another 3¢ to $2.43 per mile, the highest weekly average in more than 3 years. Van rates added 1¢ to $2.07 per mile. If vans stay at or near that level for a few more days, November’s average will be an all-time high. Flatbeds held steady at $2.29 per mile, despite a seasonal decline in load volume.

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.
