Are you still needing this shipped? What is your target price? BryanReport a Violation
Response: Yes,we do still need this load shipped - multiple times to this locaion. We also need the same 30-33 tons shipped to "Valdez ( 2 loads) and to TOK" (1 or 2 loads). Our target price is $160.00 per pallet and the more you can carry the better. How many can you haul ? Pallets/tons8/26/2010Report a Violation

Alaska based carrier can do the haul for $.25 a poundReport a Violation
Response: The product costs 7.5 cents a lb.. We have been paying .8 cents a lb.for freight and last year brought in 1,051 tons of pellets = 2,102000 lbs. We know this is a very tight price but it is the only way we can compete with the "big box" stores in Fairbanks. Thank you8/27/2010Report a Violation

Hello so you have 32 per pallets @ a rate of $160 per pallet when are you at moving this shipment Report a Violation
Response: Hi MAMABEAR5, We are ready to move this load - and several more loads of 32 pallets "right away". I just need a couple of hours on weekdays, or early on a friday if it is going to be weekend pick up. Thanks, 8/30/2010Report a Violation
Question:
7/19/2011
Hello Shipper, could a portion of this load be taken, I can only haul 40,000lbs at one time. Thank you Marc at Snortn Boar Transport.Report a Violation
Response: Hello Marc, yes, you can bring what is legal weight for you. Sounds like 19 or 20 pallets. There would be a price adjustment for less than the 32-33 Pallets as listed. Your choice of cash or company check pd. on delivery. We would need to let the producers know how many and when you could pick up, so that they can get the border crossing papers ready. If you are interested, we can send more information . Thanks, Bob & Donna 7/19/2011Report a Violation
Response: Thanks Bob, I am interested. I would do the 19 or 20 pallets for $4339.00 You would then have only a partial with the remaining 12 or 13 and might be able to find that an easier load to get up to you. maybe I could do that one as well depending on what else I can come up with to head North again. Let me know if this sounds good and I can place a bid for your approval. Marc at SBT7/19/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi Marc, Sorry we can't pay that much per pallet. As listed $5,600.00 for 33 pallets figures out to $170.00 per , and 32 is $175.00 per pallet. We need to get them here in the $175.00 per pallet range. If you think that will work for you , let us know as we have multiple loads ( full or LTL) to this location along with TOK and Haines, AK.. Thanks , Bob & Donna 7/19/2011Report a Violation
Response: Thank you I will need to think about this a bit. I am heading to Debolt, AB tomorrow am back to Seattle around the 26th. Two load out of Grnad Coulle Damn next week, I also need to run out to Michigan and bring a load of rough cut lumber to the Redwoods in Northern Ca. I wanted to run up the Alcan this summer and see it so I may take you up on the $175 a pallet price. I will check back with you here in a few days! Thanks again, Marc at SBT7/20/2011Report a Violation
Response: Thanks Marc - for your consideration and letting us know what you're thinking. let us know when you decide and of course this is the time to drive the Alcan before our winter sets in. B.C. and Alaska are beautiful this time of the year. our regards, Bob & Donna 7/21/2011Report a Violation
Response: Thank you, I would like to do this very much. It would be next month before I can swing it though! Would you be willing to work around that schedule? Thanks Marc7/21/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi Marc, Yes we can. We need multiple delivered in the next month or two, so as long as we have enough time to make the arrangements with the pellet plant - it will work. look forward to hearing from you, Bob & Donna7/21/2011Report a Violation

Response: Hi Marc, Are you still thinking about hauling these loads ? if so , when do you think you could start ?8/11/2011Report a Violation
