    we put our order in 1 month ago for 220. Last truck came in today says that's all we're getting until further notice.meanwhile down the block at the Municipal Building they're getting un limited sources to their likings. Was told not to send any more trucks to the port until further notice.they said everyone is hoarding.and only municipalities can replenish their sheds they have first dibs.....

    How will people get to your clear lots without clear roads? Not trolling or drumming a fire, just a honest, valid point imo. Roads hold a higher significance than individual business, driveways etc...

    State pays more on the trucking cost not on the salt.

    its making for an interesting winter. i could not guarantee 2 accounts this year that i would be able to apply salt bc they require 18-24 ton an app. therefore losing them . now i sit back , lick my wounds and watch the one who does try to guarantee them during the projected shortage .

    were now typing up "sand clause" amendments . rolling with the punches . thats business . just happy there no beer or food shortage.

    What kind of account requires 18-24 ton an app? Hell most malls in Philly are way less then that.

    No, just most guys say they need 18-24 to salt a bank lot, not saying you are one. That being said the only thing on Philly big enough to take a triaxle of salt would probably be the airport.
