Is Spring Shipping Season Finally Here?
MAY 1, 2018
Those declines could be a temporary blip, though, because volumes are showing signs that spring shipping season has sprung. Columbus, OH, to Buffalo, NY , fell 30¢ at $3.78/mile, still one of the highest-paying lanes going into the Northeast. Van rates spiked in early April, but the national average was in a steady decline for the rest of the month. For the month, the average van load paid $2.16/mile, which was still 2¢ higher than the March average.
