Our monthly profitability report analyzes millions of spot market loads from 70 US markets to highlight the most profitable lanes and markets across the country for various equipment types. We also share how fuel prices have changed, and the impact that has on running a profitable fleet.
Here’s what we added this month:
- August Hot Markets and lane profitability data for flatbeds, in addition to dry vans and reefers.
- Graphs that show how dry van, reefer, and flatbed lane profitability has changed over the last 3 months. Readers can use this data to understand trends and make predictions about the direction that lane profitability is moving.
- Fuel cost data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Fuel is one of the largest costs for fleet operators, so has a large impact on profitability. When we see fuel costs rise, we’d expect profitability to decline.
