    We're planning on using several sea containers this year at a couple of our large sites, to store our equipment, and bulk salt. How much salt can a 40' shipping container hold?

    56 ton but you have to really work at it.

    We only need to store about 15 tons to start with.

    Thanks

    I think the proper smart a$$ answer would be as much as what you can get in

    rob are you talking bulk or bagged?

    be careful as some container companies will not allow bulk storage and will charge for the damage.

    That's why I always buy the damage waiver.
