Will sub-zero temps stall trucking operations?

DAT Solutions

Cargo can also be damaged by the cold. If there are delays, or the truck is stranded on the highway, the cargo could be ruined. Reefers protect freezable cargo. Areas of the Midwest and Northeast were buried for weeks, and even the Southeast got hit with snow and ice, including places like Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville and Charlotte. Large swaths of the U.S. often suffer from all kinds of severe weather during the first quarter, impacting freight movements.

Here's How Hurricanes Irma and Harvey Have Affected Van Freight

DAT Solutions

That doesn’t mean that everything is the same as before – some cargo is not moving at all, and other types of freight are moving in higher volume because of pent-up demand. Atlanta and Charlotte are the two major van markets that serve Florida, and outbound rates soared in those markets, but volumes were down. Charlotte to Lakeland also spiked 36¢ to $2.89 There was also a lot of activity between Charlotte and Atlanta , and van rates rose in both directions.

How Will Hurricane Harvey Affect Freight Rates?

DAT Solutions

For example, you can expect to see a lot more than the usual number of westbound loads on DAT load boards out of Atlanta, Charlotte and Greenville , SC in the next week or two. We expect to see rates climb in the Southeast in the coming weeks as cargo ships will be diverted from Houston's deep water port to places like Miami, Savannah, and Charleston, and then transferred to other freight hubs in the region, including Memphis, Atlanta, and Greenville , SC.

Rebuilding Efforts Fuel Flatbed Demand

DAT Solutions

Baltimore rates rose sharply after Irma, likely due to ocean cargo that was diverted from Miami and Savannah. The lane from Baltimore to Charlotte jumped up 60¢ last week to $2.22/mile, but volumes are trending back down now. The immediate impacts from Harvey and Irma first showed up in van freight, then reefers. Now it's looking like flatbed’s turn.

Freight Abounds, but Rates Return to July Levels

DAT Solutions

The decline is a normal seasonal trend, reflecting a change in the mix of cargo and lanes. Charlotte and Atlanta also lost traction. We expected the sizzling hot freight market to cool off a little, and it did. An 8% drop in load posts on DAT load boards last week pushed load-to-truck ratios down, and average rates also declined a few cents per mile for all equipment types.

Cargo Ship Woes Still Affecting Spot Market Rates

DAT Solutions

Rates fell the most out of Allentown , PA, and Charlotte , but Hurricane Matthew could affect rates there this week. The bankruptcy of the world's 7th largest container carrier, Hanjin Shipping , has led to shippers re-adjusting inventories in the past couple of weeks in order to avoid stock-outs as we head into retail season. Those previously unplanned shipments have brought about a surge in demand for trucks in Los Angeles.
