Sodium chloride is used to remove ice during the winter because of its ability to lower the freezing point of water, thus keeping the roads from freezing and stopping ice from bonding to the ground, so it can be removed easily. This process is called sodium chloride deicing. Every year, cities across the nation spend millions of dollars using salt to help make roads safer, and we are proud to be one of the leading bulk sodium chloride sellers in the country.
No matter how much salt you need, we can give you the supplies to successfully use sodium chloride.

Barge delivery starts in New Orleans. The ships are unloaded in New Orleans by a company we hire. This company unloads the salt from cargo holes within the ship with a clam shell bucket attached to a crane. Then the crane operator loads the salt onto a barge. There are two types of barges that we use the box barge and the rake barge. The box barge is rectangle. The typical size is about 200 feet long and 35 feet wide. The salt cargo capacity of a box barge is 1600 to 1650 tons.
The second barge we use is a rake barge. The rake barge is also rectangle, except a rake barge has a diagonal slope in the front. The typical size of a rake barge is 200 x 35 feet. The salt cargo capacity of a rake barge is 1440 tons. Both of these barges would be a nine foot draft.
So no more moisture is added to the salt during shipment in barges all barges we ship salt in are covered barges. To receive a price on barge loads go to >>>>
