Announcement Number: IP2013-3
Posted Date: January 30, 2013
Valued Minerals Customers:
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 March 1, 2013, Union Pacific will be making adjustments to the following rate document reflective of current market conditions.
UPRR 28126 – Magnesium/Calcium Chloride – 5% average increase
Specific rates by commodity and lane will be updated and available in our Prices and Price Documents Inquiry in early February.
For notification of availability of prices and future changes, go to MyUPRR, choose "Change" from the Notifications section in the left navigation bar, and then select "Price Documents".
We are working every day to deliver a competitive product that provides value for you. Thank you for shipping with Union Pacific.
