Hanjin, Hurricanes, Harvests May Boost Truckload Rates

DAT Solutions

Further West, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho all appear to be on track for onions and potatoes. The spot marketplace remains tame despite occasional surges that cause scattered rate hikes. Capacity finds those opportunities, and throughout 2016, spot markets have restored 'normalcy' without generating the ripple effects that typically drive contract rates higher. I’d advise shippers to not get complacent about transportation costs for the longer term, however.

Rates and Demand Are Still High for Refrigerated Freight

DAT Solutions

Those, combined with the supply chain disruptions caused by the hurricanes, have led to tight capacity in southern Idaho, and outbound rates continue to climb out of Twin Falls. Seasonal harvests are winding down, but capacity is still tight for reefer freight. That’s led to higher reefer rates on the West Coast and in the Midwest. Potato shippers seem to be feeling the effects of the ELD protests that have been scattered across the country.

Imported Produce Volume Outpaces Home-Grown
