Another capacity crunch upends the freight market

National Spot Rates: Van, Flatbed, Reefer

The Roadcheck inspection blitz created a tighter spot market

May 4 – 9 – The International Roadcheck Week typically brings a drop in truck posts on the DAT One load board network. Many carriers take time off, while others are delayed by the inspections. Normally the drop is around 9%, but last week, truck posts fell 17%. Reefer carriers typically take time off in greater numbers compared to dry van and flatbed carriers. They recorded 20% fewer equipment posts last week. National average rates rose for each equipment type, with reefer and flatbed averages above the $3 mark.
