2 Signs That the Freight Recession Really Is Over
JUNE 6, 2017
Projections for Central California produce are still strong for June, so we’re keeping an eye on the Fresno market, but those shipping gaps meant that rates didn’t continue their upward trend on many of the top reefer lanes. Asparagus, beans, and peas are shipping out of Western Michigan, and reefer rates on the lane from Grand Rapids to Philadelphia jumped up 47¢ to $3.17/mile. The lane from Sacramento to Denver paid 24¢ better on average, at $2.63/mile.
