Flatbed Demand Surges in Oregon and South Dakota
SEPTEMBER 30, 2015
South Dakota has also been a hot state for flatbeds lately, with lots of loads originating in the Rapid City market. Demand has declined for flatbeds in the East and South Central regions , partly due to reductions in the steel and energy industries, respectively. The Pacific Northwest continues to offer high load-to-truck ratios for flatbeds, as shown in this Hot States Map for the week of September 20-26.
