PRICING NOTICE: Discontinuation of duplicate lumber price series online

As part of an ongoing effort to improve the customer experience in our online portal and mobile app, Fastmarkets/Random Lengths is proposing to discontinue duplicate price series for kiln-dried European Spruce 1-inch boards with effect from November 1.

The following price series would be removed.

Price ID TAG    Description

  • 13156 EAHM  Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×4 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast   
  • 13166 EAHN  Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×6 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast   
  • 13185 EAHO  Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×8 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast   
  • 13264 EAHW Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×10 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast   
  • 13280 EAHX  Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×12 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast   

These price series are identical to:

Price ID TAG    Description

  • 13585 LCES   Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×4 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast
  • 13602 LCET   Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×6 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast
  • 13607 LCEU  Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×8 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast
  • 12901  LCLA   Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×10 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast
  • 12916 LCLB   Kiln-dried spruce 2 1×12 rl fob truck del. US Gulf/East coast

Historically, Random Lengths maintained two identical sets of price series, one of which appeared in the International report and one in the Lumber report. Fastmarkets/Random Lengths believes it makes more sense to merge these into a single set of price series online.

The changes would only affect the Fastmarkets/Random Lengths historical database, online portal and mobile app. The assessments of these grades will remain available to customers in all the print publications in which they currently appear.

For comments or queries please email editors@rlpi.com, indicating “Duplicate price series” in the subject line of the email. The deadline for feedback is October 15.
