L.A. freight gets a tailwind from hurricanes and typhoons
OCTOBER 23, 2018
Mangkhut weakened as it moved on to Hong Kong and other ports and manufacturing centers in Southeastern China, but high winds and flooding damaged property and infrastructure. Denver to Albuquerque got a 7¢ increase, to $2.18/mile. West Coast van freight heated up last week, especially in the Los Angeles market. Blame the weather. Even from a great distance, three September storms had an impact on California cargo in mid-October.
