Market Highlight: Cedar Rapids, IA
This week, Cedar Rapids, IA stands out as the Top Gainer, boasting a remarkable 5.11 FIT Score surge. It’s indicative of the growing momentum as we transition from late-November into December. Explore these significant updates on the map and gain valuable insights into the evolving market trends.
What this means for carriers
- Trucks heading to Cedar Rapids might find it easier to secure inbound freight, as the current volume of inbound tenders exceeds the outbound freight in this area.
- Contracted freight, despite facing rejection rates above national averages, is presenting promising opportunities for available freight in the short-term spot market.
Market Snapshot: Peak Season Movement
This week, we’re seeing the overall market up from recent highs a few weeks ago.
The US MarketFIT score, sitting at 3.46, has begun to level off as we continue into late November but continues a gradual upward trend.
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: Upward Movement in the Southwest
This week, a wave of positive developments sweeps across the U.S., originating notably from Southern California and Texas, gaining momentum as it surges into the Northeast from Illinois. These emerging trends echo the patterns observed in last week’s update, indicating a consistent trajectory of growth coming out of these areas.
Carriers traveling Southwest routes this week should anticipate encountering slightly improved rates in vital 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.
