Flatbed Rates Reverse Course

Feb 4 – 10 – Rates have continued to decline for vans and reefers, but turned upward for flatbeds. Although rates have stepped down from their sky-high levels in early January, they’re still significantly higher than at this time last year. National average rates last week dropped 6¢ for vans and 9¢ for reefers, but gained 2¢ for flatbeds.
