Truckload Capacity Slowly Returns to Spot Market

Spot Rates Continue Seasonal Decline

Jul 15 – 21 – Truckload capacity has been tight all year, but that’s eased gradually from the June peak. The national load-to-truck ratios declined last week for dry vans, reefers, and flatbeds, taking some pressure off what have been historically high spot rates. The national average van rate declined 5¢ to $2.33 per mile, but that’s still higher than the June average. The national reefer rate also dropped 5¢, while the average flatbed rate dipped 1¢.
