Dry van and reefer rates on the spot market fell throughout 2022 after a record-setting 2021. By the end of 2022, rates were back to near pre-pandemic levels.

Last month, broker and 3PL Arrive Logistics released its annual Truckload Freight Rates Forecast for 2023, offering predictions for rates for the year ahead.
