Van rates rebound from late-summer slide
Sep 30 – Oct 6 – Spot market demand cooled down in the first week of October when compared to the end of September, when shippers were trying to move freight before the close of Q3. That contributed to looser capacity, as shown by the lower load-to-truck ratios, but the national average van rate rose 2¢ compared to the September average. The national flatbed rate fell 3¢, while the average reefer rate held steady.
