Car Shipping Rates – October 2013 – Analysis
The 2013 fall shipping rates cooled off from the summer highs. The price of diesel is down from a year ago by close to $0.23 and more than adequate truck capacity meant that there are deals to be had for car shippers. We anticipate volume and price to decrease for another month before starting to rise in December. Each regional market is different, data presented is a snapshot meant for the convenience of our customers and partner carriers.
MW to NE
Prices have gone up slightly but shipping out of the Midwest to the East coast remains affordable with very short lead times.
NE to SE
We are in the peak of the snowbirds season. Customers shipping their cars to Florida can expect to pay the highest prices of the year. The lack of return freight out of Florida means carriers are charging more to go there. Volumes are slightly higher than last year with a small increase in prices compares to October 2012.
SW to NE
Prices to ship cars out of California and Arizona have tumbled from the highs seen in July. With low volume carriers will have a hard time finding return freight. Shippers will see low prices out of California for at least the next few month.
SE to SW
Price to ship to California out of Florida have normalized and are coming down. Carriers are somewhat hesitant to send their truck to California due to difficulty of finding return freight.
SE to MW
Prices to ship to OH, MI and IL plummeted with very little volume coming out of Florida and Southeastern states.
