How Can You Soften the Blow of a Corrugated Price Increase?


In the corrugated industry, it is unheard of to instill a price increase that isn’t tied to a material cost increase.

Corrugated prices are directly tied to the paper index which is based on the transaction price from the paper manufacturers to their clients. A sheet plant or corrugator can see increases from their suppliers on starch, strapping, diesel, energy, or health insurance and must absorb these added costs in an already competitive and lean market.
