Trucking companies are raising less-than-truckload rates. In September, FedEx Freight announced that its rates would increase by 4.9% on average, effective January 4, 2016. Today, Con-way Freight announced a fall 2015 general rate increase of 4.9%, effective October 19.

According to the Con-way Freight press release, its rate increase is intended to help offset rising costs of doing business, which include contending with the nationwide shortage of qualified truck drivers, increased regulatory compliance, higher fleet operations and revenue equipment costs, and technology upgrades which enable the company’s premium service product. Customers can view the new Con-way rates after October 5 through the My page on the Con-way website.
