National Van Rates
Van Rate Declines 3¢

Aug 6 - 12 - After rising 3¢ per mile the previous week, last week the national average van rate fell 3¢, to $1.79 per mile. Lack of pressure from produce lanes and a slipping oil sector could be to blame. Still rates remain strong for August. Rates increased in Chicago and Philadelphia, but fell in Atlanta and Houston. For details, see the Rate Trend of the Week on the DAT Freight Talk blog.
