Aug 5 – 11 – Shippers have felt less urgency to move truckload freight so far in August, which has kept spot rates in check. The August national averages for van and reefer rates edged up slightly last week, while the national flatbed rate was largely unchanged. Many high-traffic lanes saw lower prices.
