Spot Market Freight Rates Soar After Hurricane Harvey
SEPTEMBER 5, 2017
Most of the major van markets actually had fewer outbound loads available, though, and most regular freight heading to Houston was canceled. Dallas rates also soared, as some freight was diverted to that busy freight hub. Rates rose in Columbus , as well, as population centers in the Northeast are receiving more freight from that direction. Stockton, CA , showed the least price movement among major freight markets last week, and outbound volumes there were off by 14%.
