Volumes up, rates down again.

National Spot Rates: Van, Flatbed, Reefer
End-of-month shipping volumes boosted load board activity, but spot rates decreased

April 25 – May 1 – Even though there are plenty of positive demand indicators for long-haul truckload carriers, excess capacity in the market is driving spot rates down. Even contract rates appear to have plateaued and are beginning to decrease. Dry van and reefer spot line haul rates dropped by another 5 cents per mile last week and even flatbed decreased 2 cents per mile, making it four weeks of successive declines.
