In order to provide reliable and efficient service to our customers, Union Pacific continues to invest heavily in its rail network. We spent $3.6 billion on capital investments during 2013 and plan to invest similarly in 2014. 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 notice so you can plan for these adjustments.
Effective May 1st, Union Pacific Railroad will adjust rates in the following documents reflective of current market conditions.
UPRR 4410 - Scrap paper rates will increase an estimated average of 3%. Individual rate increases will vary on a lane by lane basis.
UPRR 2411 - Wood chip and log rates will also increase an estimated average of 3%. Individual rate increases will vary on a lane by lane basis.
Specific rates by commodity and lane will be updated and available in our Prices and Price Documents Inquiry in early April 2014.
