Nail Update - Ocean Freight Rates from Asia

    

Dear Valued Customer;

Abington, PA (03/02/2022) – As the leading importer of roofing nails in the United States it is our responsibility to keep our customers, and the market, informed of events and trends effecting the market. As our customers know we try to be the most transparent supplier in the market. We provide you a freight rate on your quote, which is really a place holder, and then when the container ships you would be billed any excess freight if the freight is more than 3% higher or a credit if lower. No sense talking about the tripling of rates in 2021, but we do think it is important to let you know what we are seeing so far in 2022.
