Q3 closes with a rush of spot market shipments

Sept 28 – Oct 4 – The national average for van rates set a new record high, hitting $2.38 in September – 6 cents higher than the previous record set in June 2018. Shippers have relied more and more on the spot market, with disruptions from the pandemic push freight away from the contract market, and capacity tightened last week with the rush to move freight ahead of the close of Q3.
