    The salt price sounds in the ballpark, I do agree that the trucking is out of hand.

    cheaper salt

    Anyone know a trucking company that'll haul any cheaper than $40 a ton.We get salt from International Salt in Baltimore and we get some salt from the panhandle of West Virginia.Either way its same price through two different trucking companies which having a load dropped today and going up $10 a ton on me. So if anyone can haul cheaper you got my business I'm located in southwest virginia 14 hour haul from Baltimore
