For van freight, we’re starting to see hot markets shift westward, with big rate increases out of Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver and Stockton, CA. Outbound van rates have soared more than 40% in Seattle in the past month. Seattle is normally a backhaul market, meaning that outbound rates are usually quite a bit lower than the inbound rates. Rerouted port traffic from Houston to Seattle after Hurricane Harvey may have added to demand for trucks in the area.

One lane that still doesn’t pay well, though, is the one from Seattle to Stockton, CA. Vans got paid an average of $2.45/mile last week from Stockton to Seattle.
