October Flatbed Rates Were Highest of the Year
NOVEMBER 1, 2017
Houston prices have mostly been neutral, but the lane to Wichita, KS , fell to just $1.77/mile. The national flatbed rate for October was the highest of the year, boosted at least in part by rebuilding efforts in Florida and the Gulf Coast after the storms from a couple months ago. Volumes were up and down over the course of the month, though, as markets adjusted to constantly changing demand. The Memphis market posted the biggest gains for October, with outbound flatbed rates up 10%.
