This week was defined by inflation data and the corresponding sell-off in the stock market. On this Stockout episode, Mike Baudendistel discusses the impact that inflation will have on freight markets and CPG companies.
Plus, he breaks down the latest spikes in freight rates and recent CPG company news, including how a lot of CPG companies have made a big push into expanding into products that appeal to more affluent people.
Baudendistel uses the latest stats from truckstop.com to break down the higher rates and says the rate bumps could be attributed to the recent road check week.
