    DEC truckload rates

    Truckload linehaul costs rose in December more than usual, likely due to the increased freight in the Northeast due to Superstorm Sandy and its aftermath. While linehaul costs on average increase .3% from November to December, in 2012 the increase was 1.5%. The increase in spot market rates of 5% was a big contributor. These numbers are consistent with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when average truckload rates increased approximately 1% more than normal for the month of the storm and the following three months. Year over year, truckload linehaul rates were up 3.4%.
