Nationwide Truck Shortage

A nationwide truck shortage is forcing thousands of shippers into a tough choice: postpone all but the most important deliveries, or pay dearly to jump to the front of the line.

Michelin North America Inc. cut its daily shipments of synthetic rubber from one plant by a fifth earlier this month and is at times paying double its usual price for temperature-controlled trucks, said Eric Stuch, a logistics manager at the tire manufacturer. Meal-kit service HelloFresh SE recently enlisted one of its produce suppliers to help move shipments to the airport in a snowstorm.
Several factors have converged to overwhelm the trucking market. Freight volumes in December hit near-record levels for that time of year, on the back of a strengthening economy. Retailers are replenishing stocks after one of the strongest holiday sales seasons in recent years. Manufacturers are also shipping more cargo; in December, industrial production had the largest year-over-year gain since 2010, according to the Fede…

Plastics and Resin Pricing on the Move in 2018

Once again, prices of the five high-volume commodity resins were a mixed bag going into the first month of the New Year. Whereas PE and PVC prices had dropped, those of PP, PS, and PET had moved up. In both cases, feedstock costs were key drivers. But the winds of change were also blowing in different directions, potentially deflating PP and PS prices while lifting PVC prices back up.
Those are the views of purchasing consultants from Resin Technology Inc. (RTi), Fort Worth, Texas; Michael Greenberg, CEO of the Plastics Exchange in Chicago; and Houston-based PetroChemWire (PCW).
PE PRICES DROP Polyethylene prices were reported to have dropped by 3¢/lb in at least some cases in December, although suppliers announced no price reductions, according to Mike Burns, RTi’s v.p. of client services for PE. He said the price move was confirmed by several RTi clients. PCW said no suppliers had indicated a market-wide PE price reduction for December. The Plastics Exchange’s Greenberg reported tha…

Resin and Plastics Pricing News for Jan 2018

January 2018 CDI report for LLDPE.  CDI has reported no changes from December 2017 to January 2018.

**IMPORTANT NOTICE: Chemical Data (CDI) implemented a non-market adjustment (NMA) for all grades of PE resins in January 2018. These NMAs were 22 cents for LDPE, 19 cents for LLDPE B1, and they were 21 cents per pound for our dual comonomer LLDPE Hexene & Octene (HAO) film grade resin indices.

Although CDI is reporting flat this month, it does show that the resin increase of $.04/lb. has a good chance of being implemented.

Quick Pak Strap Bandit Strap Feeder

Strapping has been manually threaded for a century, but without the appropriate tools, users have had to make improvised sticks. But sticks are rigid, requiring workers to bend down or kneel to use them. Their blunt ends get stuck and the strap often comes loose during threading. Unlike jimmy rigged rods, and ill-conceived market solutions, Quick Pak Strap Bandit securely holds any type of plastic or corded strapping without ever getting stuck. And it can be used from a comfortable upright position.
