Could we see a price drop in other raw materials like we saw with lumber?

Eric Starks, Avery Vise and Todd Tranausky field a question about the price of raw materials during FTR's October State of Freight webinar.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our October State of Freight webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • There doesn't appear to be any end in sight to raw material inflation, with lumber being an exception due to a stabilization of housing starts.
  • Particularly steep price hikes in materials such as fuel and steel will continue to trend upward for at least the next 2 or 3 quarters.
