Valued Rubber and Tire Customers:

With superior network performance supported by industry-leading trends in average train speed, Union Pacific is uniquely poised to serve our customers’ transportation needs. [1] Union Pacific is committed to continuing to enhance its rail network and support customer growth.

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.


Effective July 1, 2014, Union Pacific will be making adjustments to the UPRR 28212 rate document reflective of current market conditions. We are providing our customers with advance notice so you can plan for these adjustments.

Specific rates by commodity and lane will be updated and available in our Prices and Price Documents Inquiry by June 13th.
