Van and reefer rates gain 1¢
Nov 25 – Dec 1 – Demand for vans was exceptionally strong last week, especially in lanes associated with retail and e-commerce freight. Both the national average van rate and reefer rate increased 1¢ per mile, while the national flatbed rate held steady, halting an 8-week decline. Load-to-truck ratios increased for all three equipment types and demand is expected to remain strong through the holidays.
