UPDATE 2/23/2021

Rates are down

• Average spot rates saw a 12% decrease this week from $3.20 to $2.82 per mile, once again dropping below the $3 mark.
• This week's spot rate trend is closer in line with what we've seen in the same period in 2019 and 2020. We expect to see rates increase this week as freight gets back on track following last week's weather.

UPDATE 2/16/2021

Rates are up

• Average spot rates saw a 6% increase this week from $3.02 to $3.20 per mile, staying above the $3 mark after a period of decline.
• Spot rate trends in February so far are not in line with previous years, where averages trended down and never saw any significant increases. This week in particular is seeing 23-24% higher average rates than previous years.
• We expect spot rates to increase over the next couple weeks due to weather delaying freight and tightening capacity.

UPDATE 2/9/2021

Rates are up

• Average spot rates saw a 26% increase this week from $2.39 to $3.02, sustaining a multi-week increase in rates for the first time this year.
• So far this year, the DrayNow marketplace has seen fluctuating average spot rates from $2.39 to $3.42. This week's average of $3.02 is in line with the YTD average of $2.96.

UPDATE 2/2/2021

Rates are down

• Average spot rates across all markets dropped to $2.39 this week from $2.95. This drop reflects seasonal trends and the availability of capacity on the DrayNow marketplace.
• We predicted last week that rates would start to trend downward. Time will tell if this trend will continue or if rates inch back up.
