Feb 3 – 9 – Rates continued their seasonal decline last week, even though January and February freight volumes are running higher than the past three years. National average rates were down for vans, reefers and flatbeds. National load-to-truck ratios fell for vans and reefers last week, but ticked up for flatbeds, as temperatures improved following the polar vortex.
