Spot market load volume dropped 6.1 percent last week, DAT said in its latest Trendlines report.

The drop was expected, the report noted, but the total load volume for July beat June levels for the first time since 1996, when DAT began tracking monthly statistics.

Loads were up 3.0 percent for the month, compared with a 20 percent average decline from June to July in the past 10 years.

Van and reefer rates slipped seasonally, and flatbed rates rose as a national average.
