POLL: What have COVID-19-related lockdowns nationwide done to your business?

DAT-National van ratio-2020-03-26-12-05
This chart from DAT shows the surge in volume from replenishment activities continues to drive up demand for trucks, as reflected in load-to-truck ratios (LTRs) and rates. The national average van load-to-truck ratio last week was 3.5, up from 3.2 the previous week. That’s the eighth straight week of rising ratios. More dramatically, DAT says, the average ratio is up 150% since the same week in 2019.
