TTO and BMA are affiliated companies offering different but complimentary services.
TTO publishes monthly pulp net-price indices for benchmark grades in major markets like China, Europe and North America based on actual open-market transactions.
BMA helps subscribers understand and track current pulp market conditions, and forecast short to long-term trends in pulp supply, demand, and net prices.
BMA was established in 1997 (under the name TerraChoice Market Services) to provide subscribers around the world with pulp market information and insight to improve their understanding of current and future market conditions and emerging marketplace trends.
Areas of expertise include: supply, global pulp and end-use demand, pricing, as well as environmental labeling and international trade policy.
TTO was launched in March 2016 for the purpose of producing trusted, open-market, transactions-based pulp net-price indices that track and demonstrate real market movements.
For decades, the pulp business has struggled with opaque list prices and escalating discounts, leading to inefficient supply contracts and limiting hedging opportunities. TTO net-price indices are an effective alternative to existing list-price-less-a-discount pricing mechanisms.
