UPRR 4410 and UPRR 2411 Rate Announcement
In order to provide reliable and efficient service to our customers, Union Pacific continues to invest heavily in its rail network. We spent approximately $3.6 billion in capital during 2012, and plan to invest another $3.6 billion in 2013. In order to generate an acceptable level of return on our investments for maintenance and expansion of our extensive infrastructure in the future, we review and adjust our transportation rates accordingly. These rates will be published at market levels, with all rates subject to Union Pacific's carload mileage fuel surcharge provision. We are providing our customers with advance notice so you can plan for these adjustments.
Effective May 1, 2013, Union Pacific Railroad will be making adjustments to the following Forest Products rate documents reflective of current market conditions.
UPRR 4410 (Scrap Paper) - Scrap paper rates will increase an estimated average of 4%. Individual rate increases will vary on a lane by lane basis.
UPRR 2411 - Wood chips rates will increase an estimated average of 4.5%. Individual rate increases will vary on a lane by lane basis.
