Flatbed Rates Set Another Record

DAT Solutions

Cleveland demand has been relatively cool, but prices were up 3% last week - the lane to Milwaukee was up to $3.82 Demand for flatbed transportation has been off the charts for much of 2018. For a seven-week stretch in April and May, the national load-to-truck ratio was above 100 loads per truck. Flatbed ratios are often inflated because loads get reposted and truckers in that segment are the least likely to post their trucks, but those ratios were still unprecedented.

Spot market demand heats up out West

DAT Solutions

Cleveland to Milwaukee increased 50¢ to $4.38/mi. The spot market continues to offer a mixed bag. Van volumes got a late-winter boost on the West Coast, which led to higher rates on many high-traffic lanes, but it wasn't enough to lift prices in the interior of the country. As a result, we saw continued decline in the national average rates for vans, reefers and flatbeds. That's a typical trend for this time of year, but volumes are starting to gather strength.
