March 1, 2013 Scrap Paper Public Price Adjustment

Mar 01, 2013

Effective March 1, 2013, NS will implement a market-based rate adjustment on scrap paper public rates in NS publication NSQ 40241 and change the format from a state-to-state pricing system to a zone-to-zone pricing system.

There are 5 zones over our network: Southeast, Southwest, Mid Atlantic, Midwest, and Northeast.  The states included in each zone are as follows:
Southeast Zone: NC, SC, GA, FL
Southwest Zone: AL, MS, LA
Mid Atlantic Zone: VA, TN, KY, MD
Midwest Zone: MO, OH, IN, IL, MI
Northeast Zone: NY, NJ, PA, DE, WV

The origin zones are in the rows on the left side of the table and the destination zones are in the columns along the top of the table.

For Example:  Scrap paper moving from the Southeast Zone to the Northeast Zone would have a rate of $2,950 per 50' Plate C boxcar.

These rates are not subject to a fuel surcharge. Rates are based on 50' Plate C equipment.  These rates have an open-ended expiration and therefore NS may choose to take an increase on these rates giving the customary 30-days' notice for public rate authorities.
