COVERAGE NOTE: Increase in frequency of Russian containerboard assessments to monthly

Following consultation with stakeholders, Fastmarkets RISI has decided to increase the frequency of Russian containerboard assessments to monthly from January 2021.

Until now these prices have been published on a quarterly basis and reflect prices in the last month of the quarter. Fastmarkets RISI has received requests from stakeholders to increase this frequency to monthly to better capture price movements within the quarter.
