Capacity Remains Tight for All 3 Trailer Types

Oct 1 – 7 – The national average van rate reached $2.09 per mile last week. The last time the average van rate was that high was December 2014. Reefer and flatbed rates are also at multi-year highs. Relief and rebuilding efforts in areas affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey – along with strong harvests in Northern states and California – have put a squeeze on capacity nationwide, as load-to-truck ratios remain high for all three trailer types.

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.
