In April, spot market freight availability improved by almost 25 percent over March levels, the highest spot market load volume recorded for the month of April in at least eight years
, according to TransCore Market Research.

From April 2009, spot market freight availability was up 291 percent in April. This represents the highest volume in a single month since November 2005, TransCore said. The improvements indicate a return to pre-recessionary levels on the spot market. Capacity constraints and higher freight rates are anticipated in many markets and for all equipment types, TransCore said.

According to TransCore, month-over-month increases are typical in this season, but this month's increase far outpaced the four-year average uptick of 11.5 percent between March and April.
