In this inaugural episode of The Stockout, Mike Baudendistel explains why FreightWaves is launching yet another show, this one focused on consumer packaged goods, or CPG.
Mike then discusses recent articles written for The Stockout newsletter which touch on major CPG industry themes including: adapting to post-covid lifestyles, substitution of animal-based products for plant-based ones, inflation in ingredients and packaging, rising freight costs, and yes stockouts.
In addition, Mike gives a run-down of the news which this week includes shortages of single-serving ketchup packets, the continued absence of certain McCormick spices from shelves, and a reefer market so tight that carriers are rejecting nearly half of all tenders.
