Atlanta was the hottest place to find spot truckload freight in 2016, according to DAT Solutions which operates the largest on-demand freight exchange for spot market truckload freight.
For the second consecutive year, Atlanta was the market with the most available spot van and refrigerated loads. Little Rock, Ark., repeated as the number-one market for flatbed freight posts.
DAT’s rankings are based on an analysis of over 100 million annual freight matches and a database of 33-billion market transactions on the DAT network load boards. Spot freight is seen as a dynamic economic indicator because it is unscheduled freight, according to DAT.
