Load-to-Truck Ratios Hit Record Highs
Dec 31 - Jan 6 - The combination of extreme weather, plus tightened capacity as a result of the recently implemented ELD mandate, drove rates higher during the first week of 2018. The national average van rate, reefer rate and flatbed rate all moved higher last week. The demand for trucks pushed load-to-truck ratios to record highs, including an all-time record-high of 14.7 loads per truck for vans. Visit DAT Trendlines to see the full report.
