Due to the uncertain times we live in regarding a potential no deal Brexit & leaving the European Union on October the 31st, Online Rock Salt has taken the initiative to stockpile rock salt en masse to ensure that we will have a healthy supply of rock salt throughout the winter 2020/2021 season.
As our white rock salt is in part sourced from countries within the European union and so we have taken some simple procedures to ensure that customers new and old can fully rely on us for their rock salt supply and keep their premises safe and reduce slipping hazards from ice and snow.
We currently have over 31,000 tonnes of de-icing rock salt in our reserves
We currently have over 31,000 tonnes of rock salt in our reserves and will be more than enough unless there is an exceptionally long period of sub-zero temperatures happens to grip the country, this however is exceptionally unlikely.
Managing Director, Ian Mercer had this to say on the matter: “Normally, we keep just a few thousand tonnes of rock salt and use the weather reports to gauge how much more we will require later on in the year and place another order so we aren’t over stocked. However, with brexit, this could be tricker this year and importing delays could make placing another order more difficult and it may not be arrive with us on time. This is why we are taking active measures to ensure that we will have enough stock for the entire winter.”
Although it is important to stay calm during times of uncertainty, we have taken simple steps to ensure that we will have a healthy supply of rock and white marine salt available throughout the winter.
