Sodra Reduces Price for Softwood Pulp Timber

Jan. 19, 2012 - Sodra has reduced the price of its softwood pulp timber by SEK 25 per m3sub. The price reduction is also applicable to the pulp timber element of its storm range, the company said.

However, the price of all hardwood pulp timber ranges will remain unchanged for the time being, Sodra said.

"This price reduction is a reaction to the prevailing demand, and there is plenty of raw material available at all Sodra pulp mills," said Hakan Svensson, Director of Forestry at Sodra.

According to the company, a contract adjustment concerning small sawn timber and hardwood and softwood pulp timber will be taking place at the same time. As of February 1, customers will be given the opportunity to use the applicable price for these ranges at the time of contracting.

"This adjustment will make it easier and clearer for forest owners to work out what price they will receive for their timber, and it will give us better sale options than before, and that is why this change is logical," concluded Svensson.

The new softwood pulp timber price is SEK 300 per m3sub, while the price of hardwood pulp timber will remain at SEK 350 per m3sub.
