Falling US PE spot prices...Quick Pak Inc




Falling US PE spot prices foreshadow lower June contracts Some grades of polyethylene (PE) have emerged 19% below May contract prices, suggesting that falling feedstock costs and pressure from overseas imports will cause PE contracts to settle lower in June. Negotiations for June contracts are expected to continue through the end of the month, with some producers continuing to fight decreases. Even with the lower prices, the US export market is hampered by prices in Asia that are 15-20 cents/lb lower than in North America. Major North American PE producers include Chevron Phillips Chemical, LyondellBasell, Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil, Westlake, INEOS, Total, Nova Chemicals and Formosa.

How To Save Money Shipping with UPS and FedEx

If you are shipping multiple cases to the same location, you will save a lot of money if you band the single packs into one unit.

It will be cheaper and there is less of a chance of cases going missing.

Using a table top strapping machine is very cost effective and is only $899/EA.

How to successfully Ship your boxes by UPS & FedEx.

How to successfully Ship your boxes by UPS & FedEx. You spend all this work packing the item inside the box and then it is handled like a football by the shipping company. We have all seen how boxes arrive at the door, bashed up, open, torn, some items missing, etc… When Quick Pak Inc ship boxes by UPS and FedEx, we over tape the box with custom printed tape (stops pilferage). We strap each case so if the box is dropped it won’t bust open. After the shipping labels are applied we add clear tape over the label to protect from dirt and from getting wet. If the label gets wet or can’t be read…the package will never be found.

It did not take long into June for the second attempt to implement the $.05/lb Polyethylene price increase to fizzle out.

It did not take long into June for the second attempt to implement the $.05/lb Polyethylene price increase to fizzle out. Not all producers have completely conceded the increase, but prospects are looking dim. Polyethylene market was under pressure with prices falling as much as $.02/lb this past week. Slacking demand from both the domestic and export markets led to bulging producer inventories which helped stifle the $.05/lb increase effort in May and now again in June.

Datamax-O'Neil Printer Supplies Price Increase


Datamax-O'Neil Printer Supplies Price Increase
Effective July 5th, 2011

Datamax-O'Neil continues to receive numerous notifications from raw material suppliers regarding increases in the cost of paper, synthetics, adhesives, silicone, and film products as well as other material resources used to manufacture our products. Contributing factors include:
• Shortage of raw materials such as PET Polyester and adhesive components
• Increased paper costs complicated by rising global demand
• Supplier rationalization
• Decreased supplier manufacturing capacity
As a result, Datamax-O'Neil is forced to increase prices from 3 to 5 percent on paper, synthetics, adhesives, silicone, and film products. The new prices become effective on July 5th, 2011.

Orders placed before July 5th will receive current pricing. An updated catalog will be released as soon as possible.

While we are forced to increase our prices, we appreciate your understanding as we deal with many different economic and supply constraints. We anticipate that more changes in the marketplace will come and we feel that it is imperative that we keep you informed. Datamax-O'Neil remains committed to providing you with the highest quality printer supplies and appreciates the opportunity to be your supplier. Thank you for your continued support.

LLDPE Resin: Prospects for June gloom...

PE producers have not completely postponed their $.05/lb increase.

Resin trading picked up as the month drew to a close.
Ethylene prices were slightly higher. After implementing a total of $.11/lb of increases so far in 2011, producers pushed for another nickel but came up short, although not all producers have conceded at this point. Buyers en large were able to resist the May increase, but producers will have another go at it in June. PE producers have not completely postponed their $.05/lb increase.
Trade Analyst June 2011

LLDPE: Stretch Resin Seen Rising. U.S. resin producers have issued an array of June price increase initiatives to add support to their price increase efforts.
