Find out where prices are surging
What's going on with rates?

Freight has picked up further in the last week. Many carriers sat out Roadcheck week, affecting volume. For those who didn't,  inspections may have slowed a significant number down, affecting capacity overall through the week. The result was greater demand, reflected in better rates on high-volume lanes.
The seasonal shift in reefer freight volumes from East to West continued, with harvests way down in Florida. Almost all the lanes out of the state lost traction last week.

For dry vans, retail freight is driving rates up for loads heading into the Northeast. Prices are still strong in Los Angeles, but the gains in "headhaul" rates also led to falling prices on "backhaul" lanes.
