Spot Market Rates Remain High in July

Jul 2 – 8 – Since the 4th of July landed on a Tuesday this year, many people also took Monday off for a 4-day weekend. As a result of the shorter work week, load posts and truck posts were down for all three equipment types. National averages vanreefer and flatbed rates remain elevated, though, with consumer goods pushing spot rates higher in the Northeast.

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.
