The Journal of Commerce reports that freight brokers are seeing truckload rates rising 10 percent or more due to higher demand.
According to the story, a sharp increase in the demand for trucks and trailer space have pushed up truckload rates, sometimes as high as 20 or even 30 percent in some markets.
Due to a sour economy, capacity was cut. Now that demand is up, there are fewer trucks to go around.
