Hurricanes Continue to Affect Capacity Nationwide

Sep 17 – 23 – Capacity remains tight, and national average rates for vansflatbeds, and reefers continue at their highest levels in more than two years, due partly to supply chain disruptions following Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Last week, rates rose again in the Northeast, Midwest, and Western regions, more than offsetting declines in outbound pricing from Texas, Florida, and surrounding markets.

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.
