Dry van and reefer spot line haul rates plunge

National Spot Rates: Van, Flatbed, Reefer
Spot rates are down again this week as the freight market cools rapidly

Mar 14 – 20 – Despite some of the largest week-over-week changes in diesel prices in the last two weeks, reefer and dry van spot line haul rates recorded the largest weekly decrease since 2020. The line haul portion of the rate dropped 13 cents per mile for both last week, surpassing the 11 cents per mile decrease recorded in April 2020 as demand crashed at the pandemic’s start.
