Sep 08, 2014


Effective October 1, 2014, we are making market-based rate adjustments to Norfolk Southern’s Scrap Paper tariff NSQ 40241.

NSQ 40241 covers the following commodities:

  • STCC 26-431-XX (Dunnage Bags)
  • STCC 26-497-XX (Packing Covers)
  • STCC 26-515-XX (Fiberboard Pallets)
  • STCC 40-241-XX (Scrap Paper)

Effective October 15, 2014, NSQ 40241 will be replaced by Scrap Paper tariff NSQ 40240.

The following summarizes the changes in this newest publication:

  • Continues to provide zone-to-zone pricing
  • Adds a mileage-based scale of rates
  • Replaces joint-line pricing with Rule 11 factors in connection with BNSF, CN, CPRS, CSXT, KCS and UP

Other important things to note:

  • These rates are public and therefore not subject to fuel surcharge.
  • As with all Norfolk Southern rate publications, the applicable terms and conditions are listed in the notes section of each rate authority.
