    Hey we are going through a price hike on salt in general. We charge X amount of dollars per ton. My suppliers are charging double the amount we charge to apply. How do you justify that to the customer do you renegotiate the contract (Commercial accounts) or do we just EAT IT.:cry: There is no end in sight on these price hikes. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.:help::waving:

    If you have a contract, chaulk it up as a lesson learned.

    you didn't commit to purchase a minimum amount and get a price lock in?

    If you're going to lock your prices you need to lock the supplier costs as well.
