6 Ways Low Fuel Prices Affect Carriers
On Friday, May 8, 2015
Springtime freight is coming on strong, and rates are climbing. We're starting to see more of the seasonal trends we're used to, but freight rates from DAT RateView show that van rates (including fuel surcharge) on the spot market for February were down 5.1% compared to a year ago. As a national average, that equates to about a 10¢ difference per mile. Spot market rates were elevated throughout 2014 because of the Polar Vortex, but DAT RateView™ data shows that, if you take away the fuel surcharge, the average linehaul rate was actually 9¢ higher in February 2015 than the previous year.

Energy Bubble Bursts; New Freight Markets Emerge
On Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Wave goodbye to the energy boom: After current drilling projects are completed in the first quarter, there won't be much new drilling or fracking activity for the rest of 2015. Several major oil companies have already announced plans to cease drilling, due to low oil prices, and many smaller companies are busy reworking their 2015 plans.

The impact on trucking freight is twofold: First, there will be less oil-industry cargo to move, including drilling equipment and infrastructure items, such as pipe and controls. Second, there will be less competition for drivers from this sector. These factors combine to increase downward pressure on rates, which started to drift lower last week. That trend is assisted by the declining fuel surcharge.
