8 Reminders to Keep Drivers Safe During Salt Deliveries

It’s only a matter of time until your orders become bulk salt deliveries.  Pallets get organized and properly stacked on our trucks before making their way to their respective destinations.  There might be a few variables that can’t be controlled en route with the salt deliveries, but they are miniscule in comparison to the ones that can.  Successful salt deliveries happen when you help us in the process.  Here’s what you can keep in mind:

  1. Ensure path to salt pallets’ end location is clear of trips or slip hazards.
  2. Allow ample room for drivers to back into location with tractor trailer of salt deliveries so that there is no risk for accidents.
  3. Remove all low hanging wires outside of buildings our trucks could get hung up on.
  4. Is there a legal parking space outside for our driver to park with without getting ticketed?
  5. Pallet jacks cannot be used on gravel or stone.
  6. For safety reasons, we should not take pallets into a building through a regular man-door.  They are not wide enough, and this has caused issues in the past.salt deliveries
  7. Our drivers do not offload bags of salt deliveries from the pallet.  We just put pallet where it belongs.
  8. Last but not least!  Make sure to treat icy surfaces to keep our drivers from slipping on the ice.  Check out our ice melt products to prep like a pro.


At the end of the day, we want our salt to reach you as much as you do.  But the only way to ensure that happens well is if your part is done when we arrive.  It makes our salt deliveries smoother and protects the safety of our drivers as well.  If you’re interested in our bulk salt deliveries, especially with the winter season fast approaching, give us a call and let us help you find the best option for your needs.
