DAT Truckload Volume Index hits new records in March

The DAT Truckload Volume Index reflects the change in the number of loads with a pickup date during that month, with the actual index number normalized each month to accommodate any new data sources without distortion, with a baseline of 100 equal to the number of loads moved in January 2015. It measures dry van, refrigerated (reefer), and flatbed trucks moved by truckload carriers. Overall, the index headed up 31%, from February to March. This marked its highest level going back to when the Index was rebalanced in January 2015, topping September 2020, a period when shippers were gearing up for holiday shipping and positioning freight.
