Prices Hover at 2-Year Highs

Jun 18 – 24 – Although severe weather disrupted freight movements in the South, demand remains strong nationally, and rates continue to hover at 2-year highs. National average van rates held steady for the third week in a row, while reefers gained 1¢ per mile, and flatbed rates dipped 1¢. Demand and rates may rise even higher this week, in the run-up to the July 4th weekend and the end of the second quarter.

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.
