freight forecast, you’ll notice that the Texarkana, Texas, flatbed market
continues to be red hot. Over the next week, this market will favor carriers
and owner operators by approximately two to one, meaning for each flatbed
trailer headed into or out of the area there should be two loads to choose
from. Over the next five to seven days, you also can expect reefer demand
to/from Corpus Christi, Texas, to increase and for Philadelphia to see
relatively high demand for power only capacity. When it comes to dry van,
you’ll want to keep an eye on Eastern Ontario, as demand for dry van is
projected to increase there this week.
