Freight rates for the nine-tonne pay load section for a few centres moved up by Rs 1,000 at the local truck transport market today following pick-up in cargo movements amid tight position of trucks. Transporters said better cargo movements and shortage of trucks in the markets, mainly pushed up freight rates for select destinations. Delhi to Surat, Mumbai, Pune and Baroda freight rates moved up by Rs 1,000 each to Rs 25,000, Rs 26,000, Rs 27,000 and Rs 23,000, respectively.
