Preperation For Winter 2016/17
Whilst many of us may be wondering whether we have even had a summer yet, Online Rock Salt are already looking ahead to the colder weather to come. Now is the time of year when we ensure we are well stocked ready for the season ahead.
Last year we sourced our White Salt from Torrevieja in Spain. If you have ever visited the area on holiday, you may have noticed the salt plains and huge piles of salt around the region. This year, Online Rock Salt have sourced White Salt stocks from the salt plains in Egypt. The ship carrying 7000 tonnes of salt made the journey over earlier this month, docking at Ellesmere Port on the 5th September.
This shipment will ensure that we remain well stocked for the winter ahead. After being discharged at the docks, from there we dispatch loose loads of salt direct to our customers. We also have a mobile bagging plant which we can operate on the docks, allowing us to pack and palletise the salt ready for quick dispatch of bagged salt across the country.
Due to a change in exchange rates since last year, salt imports are slightly more expensive this year. Here at Online Rock Salt we do our best to keep our prices as low as possible for our customers however, so hopefully you won’t even notice! After some very cold winters followed by a couple of milder winters over recent years, who knows what this winter will have in store for us!
