COVERAGE NOTE: Proposed Changes to Italian Kraftliner coverage
BRUSSELS, Oct. 26th, 2017 ( PPI Europe ) – To better reflect diverging prices in the Italian kraftliner market, Fastmarkets RISI proposes to make the following changes to its assessments with effect from January 2018.
Currently assessments for unbleached kraftliner reflect CIF prices for imported paper at the lower end of the range and domestic free delivered prices at the higher end of the range. Going forward, Fastmarkets RISI proposes only to reflect domestic free delivered prices in these assessments and to create new assessments for imported paper prices CIF Italian ports.
The following three assessment series would be affected:
Unbleached kraftliner 175 g+ (price ID 50)
Unbleached kraftliner 150 g (price ID 449)
Unbleached kraftliner 125 g (price ID 450)
