Turning Insights into Action

Recycled Fiber 360 stands apart from other price indexes because it utilizes transaction-based data. This approach offers a more accurate and granular view of market prices, as opposed to indexes that may rely on estimates or aggregated data.

By capturing and providing actual transaction prices, we provide insights that are grounded in real-world trading conditions, such as:

  • Index Breakdowns by Region and Source: Gain invaluable insights with detailed breakdowns of price indices, which provide a clear understanding of regional and source trends. Source segmentation includes grocery, superstore, commercial/industrial, general #12, retail, MRF, and general #11.
  • Historical Price Trends: Explore the past to predict the future. Our platform provides access to historical price data, enabling you to identify trends and anticipate market shifts.
  • Indexed Tons vs. Open Tons Segmentation: Understanding the nuances between indexed and open tons will give you a competitive edge in negotiating deals and managing costs.
  • Comparative Analysis: Benchmark your individual mills against others in the same geographic region to help you understand how you compare to the competition.

Bringing Transaction-Based Price Benchmarking to Recycled Fiber Markets

The Gap Between Price Indices and Actual Transactions

Traditional recycled fiber price indices are unreliable and don't reflect the actual market, because they're not based on real market transactions. This gap has led to an unstable market and volatile prices, leading to increased frustrations for buyers, sellers, and traders of recycled fiber. 

After conducting more than 30 interviews with buyers, sellers and traders of recycled fiber, here is what we’ve learned:

  • Existing price indices do not reflect underlying supply and demand.
  • Benchmarks do not accurately reflect differences in geography, product quality, or format.
  • Current conditions do not enable reliable benchmarking of one’s own selling or buying activity.
