    As it states. Hard to say amounts yet, but probably a couple semi loads to start and 3-4 tons plus per event.......its going to depend on accounts and what type of storage I can secure for bulk.

    I just want a rough price per ton delivered depending on amount, and pricing per ton picked up or delivered in 1-4 ton increments.

    This may also have potential for securing about 100 tons total with another company I know looking as well, but please don't feel you have to base my pricing on that possibility.

    Just looking for options, please feel free to PM rather than posting in an open forum.

    Thanks in advance!

    Define "green". As in color? Treated? Or, as in "environmentally friendly"?

    Oh yeah.....yep...color. It's treated. Around here it's actually pretty well known ;) The stuff activates extremely well, and can get wet without hardening.

    There's green, purple, blue, std white......... We prefer the green.

    The only green treated product I know of is Cargill's ClearLane, which is simply liquid mag on halite. It's OK, but IMO there are better products for comparable prices, IMHO. Getting small quantities of treated bulk will be difficult, as the terminals are 10 ton minimum, and very few yards stock it in bulk. IDK where you're located, but I do have a partner yard coming together this season in Chicago Heights, if that helps. And they will be stocking treated bulk--probably Central's Slicer product, which is purple. For this season, it will be sold per yard via Bobcat. If it goes well, we may invest in scales down the road--baby steps, though.

    As far as delivered quoting, PM me your address and I can shoot something over to you. Whether or not it's competitive IDK--we don't do much into Indiana, but it's not a problem to do it. Just might not be competitive, as I don't know where you terminals are there. Our products would come from Chicago or Lemont, depending on which product you want.

    LMK!
     
  7. Yea that works great. I remember you talking about that yard last year. Let me know how much you want out of there

    Isn't that North American's Beet Juice-treated product?
