Rock salt stocks remain in plentiful supply and after a busy October we are going into winter well stocked. Our new distribution point in Glasgow is proving popular and allowing for fast and competitive supply to all Scottish postcodes. This together with grit salt stores in Liverpool and Litchfield provide fast national coverage.
One further Egyptian shipment of white de-icing salt is due to arrive at Ellesmere Port on Wednesday 16th November and this secures stocks into the new year. Weather forecasts are suggesting we will have some frosts during the first half of December.
September 2nd 2011
Our latest shipment has arrived today from Egypt of white marine salt. We are packing this into 10kg bags along with large packs and bulk bags ready for the winter.
Many customers are already planning ahead for the cold winter months, taking delivery of salt early and maximising cost savings by buying before demand increases.
If you would like to talk to us about buying salt early please get in touch we would be happy to hear from you.

This week we have had a further shipment of salt into ourselves and the bagging operation is going well. If any more bad weather comes we will have plenty of bagged salt in stock ready for immediate dispatch. We recommend ordering early keeping some salt in stock just in case we have another cold snap.
It’s hard to believe with the winter we have had but it is still only January!

Sep 28th 2010
After a phenomenally successful week we have sold or committed to sell all of the salt brought in from Egypt. The demand for salt this year is staggering so we’ve taken the plunge and a second shipment is on its way, this time from Sardinia.
The ship MV Rheinfels left yesterday and is due in to Ellesmere Port early next month.
Online Rock Salt strongly recommends that you order early to beat the winter rush and guarantee supplies.
