Trucking rates increased for the eighth straight month with average van rates increasing 11% and reefer rates increasing 3% from December 2021 to January 2022.1 These stats are reported from DAT Freight & Analytics and based on $116 billion in annualized freight transactions. Industry experts say this is the result of tight capacity due disruptions from winter weather, COVID-19, and recent trucker protests.2
