Arrive Logistics has updated their 2024 Freight Rate Forecast and we're breaking down the key points.

Spot Rates & Market Turnaround: Expect spot rates to inch up as 2024 rolls on, with a reset happening amid seasonal swings. The magic moment when contract rates hit their low point could be around Q2 or Q3, signaling a potential market uplift.

Key Metrics:

  • Van spot rates are predicted to hit a 14% year-over-year growth rate in Q4.
  • Van contract rates will nearly flatline year-over-year by 2024's end, hinting at increases into 2025.

  • Reefer spot rates are looking at a 12% year-over-year growth by Q4.
  • Reefer contract rates should level out year-over-year by the end of 2024, with an uptick expected into 2025.

Demand and Supply:

  • A resetting inventory cycle might prop up demand, albeit slowly. However, a shadow looms with potential economic normalization.
  • The market's pretty flush with supply for now, but keep an eye out for disruptions that could shake things up as the year progresses.
