What data does TRAC Spot Rates provide?

Spot rates, combined with more stable contract rates, play an important role in freight forecasting. FreightWaves TRAC collects and aggregates spot rate data daily from among the biggest players driving the market.

How do TRAC Spot Rates compare?

Current market spot rate data can be days or even weeks old, making it difficult to compete in today’s volatile markets. TRAC provides the freshest spot rate data on day of tender that were booked yesterday.

Why should you use TRAC Spot Rates?

FreightWaves TRAC combines fuel surcharge and line haul data to create an “all-in” spot rate, while other data (including accessorial charges) are removed, giving you cleaner, better data to price accordingly.
