Knowing where demand for trucks will be high in the future is priceless. When you know in advance which markets are likely to pay higher rates, you have time to get your truck(s) into those regions to capitalize on high demand. The same holds true for markets where demand and rates are low or decreasing. Knowing in advance where rates will be on the downswing gives you time to get your truck(s) out of those areas and into more profitable ones. The Trucker Tools’ Market Index Report provides you with this information three times each week. The best part? Our Market Index Reports are free for drivers and carriers.
