PAPER & TRANSPORTATION COST INCREASES
We also issued notice to our customers in late 2017 of potential paper cost increases due to the closing of the West Linn Paper mill. Midstates Group has received multiple notifications regarding increases in paper cost. In addition, we have also been seeing rising freight costs due to a nationwide trucking capacity issue and increasing fuel costs. We have several long-standing relationships with reputable carriers and continue to negotiate the best possible prices for our customers. However, these increases are projected to continue on into 2018.
We will do our best to minimize these increases nevertheless customers will be affected. If you would like more information about how these increases may affect your printing and or fulfillment projects please contact us: (800) 456-2431.
