Rates fell down in August

Per-mile spot market rates dipped in all three major truckload segments in August, according to national monthly rates averages.

Though the dips were in line with usual summer trends, it wasn’t just seasonality that snared rates in August, says Stephen Bindbeutel. Freight demand — and rates — continue to feel the effects of a broader economic slowdown, uncertainty over the lingering trade war with China and a recent dip in manufacturing output, he says.

Rates zoomed upward in 2018, but have been declining steadily since peaking last June.
However, freight demand could pickup in September, Bindbeutel says, as companies try to get ahead of the Dec. 15 deadline for the next round of tariffs that President Trump intends to levy on Chinese-imported goods.

“We should see a short-term boost that should sustain us in September,” he said. “I think we’ll see a nice little push to get us through the fourth quarter and retail and holiday season.” That’s good for the short-term, says Bindbeutel, and could provide time for trade issues and other economic uncertainties to “be resolved and get back on track” heading into 2020.

    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth – Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! …
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?
    How do you think?
    Now we have total control in our country. I am interested in the opinion of foreigners.
