Where’s the Freight? Texarkana, Tucson, Regina, Philadelphia and Rapid City Hottest Markets for Drivers and Carriers This Week

Share it:

Happy Friday, friends, and welcome to the Friday edition of “Where’s the Freight?,” Trucker Tools’ free freight forecast for fleets and owner operators. “Where’s the Freight?” uses data from Trucker Tools’ technology platforms to predict where demand for flatbed, reefer, power only and dry van capacity will be high and low across the United States and Canada in the coming week.

In today’s 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.
