Freight Volumes Surge Following Holiday Week

Rates Back Off After Pre-Holiday Rush

Jul 9 – 15 – The post-holiday week brought record van volumes in the top 100  lanes, and flatbed volumes showed strong gains as well. Higher demand did not lead to higher rates, however, as urgency subsided. The national averages for van, reefer and flatbed rates declined.

The chart above depicts national average spot market rates for the past four weeks, including fuel surcharges. Weekly rate snapshots reflect averages for the month to-date, from DAT RateView.
