Price increases for Uncoated Recycled Board in the U.S.

It has been reported that there have been scheduled price increases for uncoated recycled paperboard (URB) in North America.

Greif, Inc. said it will implement a $50 to $70 per ton increase for all grades of URB products effective with new orders and shipments on and after July 8. The company said the increase is in response to increased raw material, energy, labor, and transportation, as well as increasing demand for URB. Sonoco said it would implement a $70 per ton price increase for all grades of URB in the United States and Canada, with shipments beginning July 10. This price action is necessary to offset increased input costs, the company said.
