Average Van Rate Remains Above $2 Per Mile

Oct 8 – 14 – The national average van rate dipped 2¢ to $2.07 per mile, which is well above seasonal norms. Reefer rates edged down a penny from a multi-year high, but flatbed prices continued to climb. Rebuilding efforts have begun in areas affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, and strong freight volumes are being produced in the Western region. The combination has put additional pressure on truckload capacity, so load-to-truck ratios remain elevated for the three trailer types.
