Demand heats up in the Southeast region

Mar 2 – 8 – Truckload rates are starting to gain traction in the first week of March. Volumes are increasing seasonally, despite coronavirus-fueled unrest in the equity markets. Retailers are playing a role, replenishing inventories as consumers clear store shelves of emergency supplies. Flatbeds are also in demand, especially in the Southeast, home to 7 of the top 10 fastest-growing markets for new single-family homes in 2020.
