Current Conditions for U.S. Containerboard, Corrugated Boxes and Boxboard

Tue, Sep 09, 2014

US corrugated box shipments jumped to 30.5 billion square feet (BSF) in July, after adjusting the data for seasonality and working days. This figure was 1.6% higher than the year-ago level, and also the highest monthly figure since May 2013. The strength of shipments in July was somewhat surprising, given the continued decline in industrial production of processed foods during the month. However, all of the industrial production data are subject to revisions going back six months, and the revisions in processed food output tend to be rather significant.
