December demand disappoints
Rates dip for vans, reefers, flatbeds

Dec 9 – 15 – In recent years, spot market rates have spiked in December, but that hasn’t happened in 2018. In fact, the national van rate dipped a few cents to $2.08 per mile, matching the average rates for both November and October. The national reefer and flatbed rates also declined. The load-to-truck ratio—a measurement of demand versus capacity—dipped for vans and flatbeds and was unchanged for reefers.
