Roadcheck Adds Pressure on Already Tight Capacity

Jun 3 – 9 – Spot market demand has exploded in June. Capacity was already tight from Memorial Day week, so the effect from last week’s Roadcheck inspection blitz was even more pronounced this year. The national average van rate jumped 10¢ per mile, and is now just below its January peak. The average reefer rate surged 14¢, and the national flatbed rate hit another record high, increasing 6¢ to $2.81 per mile.
