Extra capacity leads to cooler freight markets

Oct 14 – 20 – Freight movements stalled two weeks ago when Hurricane Michael wreaked havoc on the Southeast, and volumes have yet to rebound. As a result,  load-to-truck ratios for each equipment type are the lowest they’ve been all year. An increase in available capacity also pushed national average rates lower for vans, flatbeds and reefers, with dry van rates also hitting their lowest point so far this year.
