Navigator to offset rising input costs with 15% surcharge

The Navigator Company is to apply an energy, logistics and commodities surcharge to its tissue products, amounting 15% of the sales price, to “offset the significant and unexpected raising of its input cost”.

Its application will be effective for all dispatches from 15 January onwards.

The company said the continuity and amount will be regularly reviewed, adding: “The global change in the economy, with dramatic impacts, affects the overall industry with unsustainable increase in input costs, such as energy, natural gas, pulp, chemical products, packaging materials, wood pallets and logistics.

“Navigator believes that this exceptional measure is imperative to support the long-term sustainability of its business model and of the overall supply chain.”
