CRU – More than Prices

CRU price assessments are supported by our deep understanding of commodity market fundamentals, the operation of entire supply chains and our broader market understanding and analysis capability - this approach distinguishes us from any other Price Reporting Agency.

Established track record with our customers

Customers who depend on our leading price and analysis services include major mining, trading, manufacturing, construction and financial services companies worldwide.

Many CRU prices are embedded in physical contracts, and one such leading benchmark confirmed by independent research, is CRU’s US Midwest HRC price; also known as “The CRU”. This price is also used as the settlement price for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s established and growing US Midwest domestic HRC futures and options contracts.
