Participate in FBA’s Independent Sheet Plant Operating Ratio Survey

Don't miss your chance to participate in this year's Independent Sheet Plant Operating Ratio Survey. Traditionally a benefit reserved for members only, all independent sheet plant operators can now participate in this survey that provides participants with information to benchmark their operations against other facilities by

comparing costs and identifying areas for improved competitive advantage.

This user-friendly report provides data:

  • in three ways – dollars, dollars/MSF and as a percentage of net sales
  • in an Excel, PDF and hard copy format and
  • where available, data for fulfillment and warehouse operations.

The information to be compiled will be for the period ending December 31, 2021, or most recent fiscal year (12-month period).

The individual company information you provide for the de-identified survey will be destroyed upon compilation
