Buckman Announces North America Price Increase Related to Freight Costs


Oct. 11, 2018 - Buckman has announced changes to its freight pricing for the pulp and paper industry in North America. Effective November 1, 2018, or as contracts allow, Buckman will implement the following freight delivery increases:

  • Buckman-arranged bulk tank truck orders: $.02 - $.04/lb.
  • Buckman-arranged IBC/drum truck orders: $.02/lb.

The change is being driven by the continued shortage of drivers, limited capacity of truck and rail carriers, new freight regulations and rising cost of fuel.

Buckman is a privately-held, global specialty chemical company with headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee. To learn more, please visit:
