Spot Market Insights

5/16/2022

Spot rates, volume fall in the latest week

After rising slightly in the prior week, dry van and refrigerated spot rates in the Truckstop.com system returned to their downward trend during the week ended May 13 (week 19). Flatbed spot rates also declined slightly. The effects of declining rates on carriers operating in the spot market are compounded by ongoing increases in diesel prices. Spot volume also was down in all three segments. Rates and volume likely will rise in all segments during the current week due to International Roadcheck.
