Truck Posts Jump Following Holidays

Jan 7 – 13 – Rates edged down slightly for all three equipment types last week. The national average van rate stepped down 2¢, and reefer and flatbed rates dipped 1¢. Those lower rates are still higher than at any point in 2017, however. Truck posts were up significantly following the two holiday weeks, but snowstorms in the East, plus drivers adjusting to ELDs, continue to affect productivity.
