Salt Price Adjustments Effective 8/1/2012
Announcement Number: IP2012-22
Posted Date: June 28, 2012
Union Pacific Railroad continues to invest heavily in its rail network in order to provide reliable and efficient service to our customers. We plan to invest approximately $3.6 billion in capital during 2012. In order to generate an acceptable level of return on our investments for maintenance and expansion of our extensive infrastructure, we must 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 that they can plan for these adjustments.
Effective August 1, 2012 Union Pacific is announcing price adjustments for those lanes published in UPRR 1428 for our Salt business. Rate increases will vary by each market and car type but will average 4.5%. Updated items for this rate document will be available in our Prices & Price Documents Inquiry approximately 20 days in advance.
If you have any questions please contact your Union Pacific representative.
