Nov 27 - Dec 3 - As expected, load posts surged last week, following Thanksgiving week in which people took one or more days off. Less expected were the unseasonably high load-to-truck ratios. Last week's 4.7 load-to-truck ratio for vans is the highest seen since June of 2014. The ratio for reefers was 8.2, the highest since March 2015. Van rates gained 8¢, reefer rates added 1¢, and flatbed rates were up 2¢ compared to the previous week.

The chart above depicts national average spot market rates for the past four weeks, including fuel surcharges. Weekly rate snapshots reflect averages for the month to-date, from DAT RateView.
