Spot Market Insights

1/18/2022

Flatbed powers the spot market in the latest week

Sharply stronger flatbed load postings and rates were principally responsible for an increase in spot volume and only a small decline in rates during the week ended January 14 (week 2). Total volume rose 6.1% while total spot rates declined nearly 4 cents. Dry van volume was barely above flat week over week, but dry van and refrigerated metrics otherwise were weaker than in the prior week. Widespread winter weather over the weekend could result in bigger changes in spot metrics in the coming week.
