Question:
8/30/2008
I have a 15' x 6.5' x 6.5' truck. Extimating 2' round by 3' high I could get 3 by 7 rows x 2 layers at approx 42 per load. How much do you want to spend per barrel to ship? I can probably load if barrels are individuals. I estimage approximately $6.50 per barrel for me to ship or $300/load. Let me know what you think.Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for your question. Well, my ideal scenario is a large tractor trailer where I could get, say, 130 barrels in the truck, and get my unit cost down to around $4/barrel or $5/barrel including loading. I recognize that the economies of scale might not work for a smaller truck like yours, but if you can bid at the $5/barrel level (incl loading), I think it would be pretty competitive. (Yes, the barrels are individaul) Many Thanks, John 8/30/2008Report a Violation
Response: Looks like its about 100 miles between locations. I could probably do 40 plus barrels per trip at 2 to 3 trips a day if that would be ok with the two destinations. Loading should not be a big deal. For the uship contract how many barrels do you want us to bid on? I see your time frames are flexible but what time would be ideal?
