What do you get when you put together a booming economy, new regulations targeting certain sectors of industries, and a lack of freight capacity?

Ag shippers are finding out that the answer to that question is extremely high lane rates.

Trucks from the Imperial Valley and Yuma areas are setting records, with some trucks to the East Coast running at over $10,000. According to the sales manager at one of California’s largest organic producers, trucks to eastern Canada are coming in at over $11,000.
