Van and reefer load posts decline for second week in a row

Apr 19 – 25 – Both the dry van and reefer segments are beginning to cool off and exhibit regular seasonality. Capacity in flatbed, however, remains tighter than the last tight market cycle in 2018. For context, load post volumes increased again last week making it nine weeks in a row and are now 21% higher than the same time in 2018. Since the start of this year, spot market load post volumes have doubled.
