Load-to-Truck Ratios Dip, but Not Prices

Jun 11 – 17 – Load board activity subsided from the previous week in which the national load-to-truck ratio for all equipment types hit its highest mark in years. Despite the dip in load-to-truck ratios, rates did not fall. National average rates held steady for vans and reefers, while rates for flatbeds increased 1¢ per mile. Rates for all equipment types remain at their highest level in nearly two years.

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.
