Re: The History of Shipping Bulk Cement

You need to have the ability to unload and transport a product in house. Here in the Upper Midwest most cement was sold to lumber yards. First in barrels, then cloth bags, then paper sacks – still sold at barrel pricing after the end of this list timeframe. 4 97lb sacks equal 1 barrel of cement. It wasn’t till batch plants became common did the scales tip toward bulk cement in covered hoppers. Excluding highway or other large jobs. Other areas of the country may differ?
