Re: Truck drivers see orders, miles fall in latest U.S. slowdown signal - Reuters
This has been going on for 2 months,,,at least from what I've seen.
I noticed a slowdown starting back in January.
I ship a lot of potatoes out of North Dakota all winter long thru May & this
past January was the 1st time in ten years I saw rates drop during winter.
And then once my trucks made it to Indiana it was super tough finding
reloads back. And when you did, the rate was super cheap,,, $1.50-1.75 per mile
when it usually is 2 to 2.30 per.
Rates are low all over the country & the number of available loads has
dropped also. But, I think it's just a typical cycle. I've seen it like this over the
years. You'll have a year to year & a half where there's more freight than trucks
and the rates are decent,,,followed by 6 months of what we have now,,,then it
