Van segment spot rates in the Truckstop.com system barely changed during the week ended June 17 (week 24), but flatbed spot rates saw their sharpest drop since mid-November. Flatbed’s recent rate strength – the segment posted a record two weeks earlier – appeared to run counter to other spot metrics, which had been cooling or stabilizing. The van segments have yet to show seasonal rate strength, but the largest gains typically occur in the back half of June. Total spot volume was down slightly.
