Fuel, Demand, and ELDs Ratchet Up Rate Pressures

Nov 12 – 18 – Rising fuel prices, unprecedented spot market demand, and the imminent ELD mandate combine to ratchet up the pressure on rates. The national average reefer rate increased 3¢ to $2.40 per mile — a 3-year record — as shippers rush to fill the stores with fresh produce, poultry and meat for Thanksgiving. The average van rate remained at $2.06 per mile, signaling that November’s average may hit an all-time high. Flatbed rates slipped 1¢, to $2.29 per mile, which is atypically high for the season.

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.
