Rates Hit 2-Year Highs After Hurricanes Irma and Harvey

Capacity Tightens in Wake of Hurricanes

Sep 10 – 16 – Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have come and gone, but their destructive effects will last for months or even years. Last week, supply chains that were already disrupted by Harvey were hit again by Irma’s landfall. Truckers and freight brokers have been helping with recovery efforts, while tight capacity caused by the disruption, combined with demand from a stronger economy, boosted spot market volume and rates to the highest levels in more than two years for vansflatbeds, and reefers.

The chart above depicts 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.
