The national average van rate for June was 10 cents per mile higher than May. Prices were up in major freight markets such as Los Angeles, where they rose 14 percent; Memphis, which saw a 12 percent increase; and Atlanta, where rates were up 11 percent. That indicates higher truck demand and tighter capacity as freight flows inland.
