Valued Roofing Shingles Customers:

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 a record $4.1 billion 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 with advance notice so you can plan for these adjustments.

Effective August 1, 2014, Union Pacific will be making adjustments to the following rate document reflective of current market conditions.

UPRR 2952 – Roofing Shingles – 5% average increase 

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

If you have any questions please contact your Union Pacific representative.
