Continued Increase in China Steel and Rising Ocean Freight Raise Nail Prices to Highest Level in Recent Years

Continued Increase in China Steel and Rising Ocean Freight Raise Nail Prices to Highest Level in Recent Years
August 14, 2017

The price of steel continues to be very volatile and moves almost daily. Since July 1, the price of wire rod has increased over 10% to 4200 RMB per ton, a 5 year high.
