Market Highlight: Fargo, ND

Fargo has experienced an uptick in numbers this week along with a few of its counterparts, with the FIT Score increasing 8.63 from the previous week. It’s creeping back up the hill with comparable numbers to its peak score several weeks ago at the beginning of October. This market is the strongest in the Western parts of the US, but here are other spots to mention throughout the map this week.

What this means for carriers

  • Carriers inbound to Fargo may find an easier time finding inbound freight relative to other markets as inbound tenders currently exceed outbound 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. 

Market Snapshot: Heading Into Peak Season

This week, we’re seeing the overall market down from recent highs a few weeks ago.

The US MarketFIT score is 2.85, plateauing with its score mid-October.

We will be watching this number closely as we continue into peak season to see how it moves over the next few weeks.

Lane Rates: Positive Movement in the Midwest 

This week, we’re seeing some positive scores in the Midwest similar to last week, in particular, between Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. In addition to positive scores coming out of the Western Coast, particularly between Southern California and its counterparts.

Carriers running lanes in the midwest this week should be able to find slightly more favorable rates in key lanes.

We’ll keep an eye out to determine if these key markets continue to move in the right direction.

Available to all of our clients is a load board integrated directly into MarketFIT that not only shows you the rates but also helps you find the best available loads quickly.
