Spot rate seasonality returns – van and reefer down, flatbed up.

National Spot Rates: Van, Flatbed, Reefer
Dry van and reefer spot rates have decreased on average around 8 cents per mile in the last month while flatbed rates have increased by close to that amount

Feb 28 – Mar 6 – The national average spot rate for all three equipment types combined is currently 38 cents per mile higher than the same week in the previous year. And while the spot market is beginning to exhibit signs of seasonality as we head into Spring, the flatbed market is heating up ahead of the building and construction season surge in activity. Spot rates in this sector are just 4 cents per mile lower than the all-time high recorded in July last year.
