Spot Market Insights

10/03/2022

Spot volume eases, rates are steady in the latest week

The spot market changed little during the week ended September 30 (week 39) as total rates edged up slightly and volume declined modestly. Hurricane Ian did not make landfall in Florida until Wednesday afternoon, so it might have had only a minor impact on the weekly figures. However, both dry van and refrigerated saw notable load posting gains in the Southeast even as volume was down or rose only marginally in all other regions. Dry van rates ticked up slightly, but refrigerated rates fell.
