Freight Rates Continue To Rise

Share This Post

Freight rates continue to rise as peak season continues to progress. Freight rates are rising to three-year highs as tracked through the ComFreight Rate Trend tool. Rates are set to continue to rise slightly as capacity demand primarily drives the increase.

Here are rate trends as tracked through the Rate Trend tool on ComFreight for the past 2 weeks of bid and invoice rate data.

Reefer: US AVG $2:45/Mile

Dry Van: US AVG $2.10/Mile

Flatbed: US AVG $2.29/Mile

We expect rates to continue to rise slightly as we go into the final stretch of peak season.
