Welcome to a brand new edition of “Where’s the Freight?,” Trucker Tools’ free freight forecast for carriers and owner operators. Each edition of our free freight forecast includes information on where demand and rates for flatbed, reefer, power only and dry van freight will be highest and lowest over the next five to seven day period.

In the coming week, you can expect demand for power only capacity to be extremely high in several markets, including San Diego and Mobile, Ala. If you run reefer freight, you’ll want to target loads into and out of Texarkana, Texas, this week, as demand is projected to be high and to increase further over the course of the week. Over the next five to seven days, demand and rates for dry van capacity inbound to and outbound from Ithaca, N.Y., are projected to increase, while Minot, N.D., will see very low demand for dry van capacity.

Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!
