Rates Drift Down

Apr 12 - 18 - National average rates drifted down again last week, losing 2¢ for vans and 3¢ each for flatbeds and reefers, as a national average. A portion of the change was due to declining fuel surcharges.

The chart at left depicts national average spot market ("broker buy") rates in the past four weeks, derived from DAT RateView.
