Load-to-truck ratios rise for vans and flatbeds

Feb 10-16 - On the top 100 van lanes, rates were pretty equally divided between rising, falling and neutral. Even where rates moved lower, most declines were modest. The story was largely the same for flatbeds. However, reefers experienced larger declines in both rates and load-to-truck ratios.
