In this episode of The Stockout, Mike Baudendistel discusses a number of freight-related data points that highlight the challenging market conditions that consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies face as they work to preserve their margins in this highly inflationary environment. 

Prices continue to rise across the CPG markets nationwide, and Baudendistel looks at those costs coming from the highway, the rails and the ocean. He also talks about his thoughts on the market for the remainder of the year.
