Sun Belt States are Hot for Seasonal Freight
MARCH 15, 2016
Freight markets are heating up in the Sun Belt. Flatbeds saw rising freight volume and rates in the Southwest and a handful of Southeastern markets. Flatbed freight is strongest in the Southeast region, but not in the usual locations. Other warm-weather markets also got a boost last week, including Los Angeles , where outbound rates rose an average of 5¢, and Phoenix , where a big increase in freight volume led to an 18¢ jolt.
