Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Total U.S. kraft paper shipments in May were 128,500 tons, a decrease of 3.3% compared with the prior month, AF&PA (Washington, D.C., USA) reports in its May 2013 Kraft Paper Report published this week. Bleached kraft paper shipments increased year-over-year 24.5%, but the 11.5% year-over-year decline in the larger category of unbleached kraft paper shipments was enough to bring overall kraft paper shipments down 7% year-over-year.

Total month-end inventory increased 6.3% to 70,700 tons this month compared with April 2013 month-end inventories.
