OCTOBER 7, 2015
Albuquerque also has high load availability for vans, coupled with a shortage of trucks, as shown in this Hot States Map for the week of September 27 to October 3. Outbound rates edged up in Los Angeles, Dallas, Philadelphia and other major freight markets, however, as shippers rushed to move inventory before the quarter ended on Wednesday. Van demand rose 11% last week, in the end-of-quarter rush , and truck capacity tightened by 2.9%.
