Van Rates Lose 2¢ on Mixed Regional Results

Sep 25 – Oct 1 – Load availability increased, but van rates lost 2¢ per mile as a national average. Results varied by region, as outbound rates rose in most West Coast markets. Reefer and flatbed rates held steady last week, with seasonal changes in some key markets. Rates may rise in the Southeast this week, as shippers attempt to move freight out of the path of an oncoming hurricane.

The chart above depicts national average spot market rates, including fuel surcharges for the past four weeks. Rates are derived from DAT RateView.
