Decision to adjust Carolinas busheling prices

Following a 30 day consultation period, Fastmarkets has realigned its consumer buying prices for No1 busheling in North Carolina and South Carolina respectively, effective from the January 2023 settlement.

The realignment follows market feedback of a discrepancy in reported prices for No1 busheling and actual market transaction prices.

The price for No1 busheling in both North Carolina and South Carolina was assessed at $440 per gross ton on Tuesday January 9, representing a $50 per ton month-on-month trend increase and a $45 per ton non-market adjustment.

The original notice, published on December 8, can be found here.
