Lower Fuel Surcharges Cause Dip in Van, Reefer Rates
Capacity Still Loose in Many Places

Mar 19 - 25 - Trucks were ready to go after the winter storm from a couple weeks ago had cleared out, so even though volumes picked up on many of the top van lanes, there was enough capacity to keep rates from rising. Lower fuel surcharges caused the national averages for van and reefer rates to dip 1¢ per mile. The national average flatbed rate rose 1¢. 

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.
