Van and Flatbed Ratios Rise During Holiday Week

Rates Edge Down

Nov 20 – 26 – Last week began with a flurry of load board activity, but it slowed by Wednesday afternoon for the long Thanksgiving weekend. Rates rose on the high-traffic lanes, but some backhaul lanes lost traction, so adjustments to the national averages were small. Van rates dipped 1¢, reefer rates added 1¢, and flatbed rates fell 2¢, compared to the previous week.

The chart above depicts national average spot market rates, including fuel surcharges for the past four weeks. Rates are derived from DAT RateView.
