Vans, Reefers, Flatbeds Add 1¢

Jun 10 – 16 – Although some capacity returned to the spot market after the Roadcheck inspection blitz, trucks were still hard to find last week, pushing prices upward for all three equipment types. The national average van rate increased 1¢ per mile, matching the record high set in early January. The average reefer rate also inched up 1¢, a penny below its January peak. And the national flatbed rate hit another record high, gaining 1¢ to reach $2.82 per mile.
