Fixed contracts: A superior approach to protecting profit margins
Most end-users procure their plastics through spot purchasing and floating contracts. However, neither of these strategies provide much protection from significant swings in plastics prices. As an increasingly popular alternative, fixed contracts help mitigate the risks posed by volatile prices by using the commodity markets to “lock in” a fixed price for critical sales for an extended period. 

By minimizing the price volatility of a major cost input, fixed contracts can enable more accurate forecasting & budgeting on your plastics spend and more “predictable” profit margins month to month.
