Flatbeds Post Only Increase in Spot Market Rates Over Past Week

The average flatbed rate on the spot market picked up a little more steam while rates in the other two sectors remained stable as both the number of loads to move and truck capacity increased.

According to DAT Solutions network of load boards, flatbeds increased 1.4% the second week of the month compared to the first week to $2.15 per mile. All of the hike was in the linehaul portion of the rate while the fuel surcharge was unchanged.
