Now, let’s see a snapshot of live data from this week to give you an upper hand as you plan your routes and negotiate rates. Reach out to us at 877.807.3006, if you’re interested in getting access to the full platform.
Market Highlight: Duluth
Duluth has experienced some of this week’s largest market improvement, with the FIT Score increasing 14.02 points from the previous week. It’s significantly higher than it was even a few weeks ago. This market is the strongest in the Midwest, but here are other bright spots throughout the map this week.
What this means for carriers
- Carriers inbound to Duluth may find an easier time finding outbound freight relative to other markets as outbound tenders currently exceed inbound freight volume.
- Tender rejection of contracted freight are above national averages, indicating more freight may be available on the sport market in the short term.
