Doing a project on the straw market. Could anyone indicate approximate straw haulage costs per tonne. Appreciate totally dependent on circumstance but lets say up to 80 miles and repeat business. TIA
Project to do with renewable energy so if i say Central England and delivering to an energy plant?
Thats a good rate. We looked at hauling barley into store ourselves because we were fed up waiting for lorries. £6.50 ton for what would have been 3 hour round trip with loading and unloading. 18t trailer with 16t barley worked out at £104. £34.60/hour.£60 per hour for unit and 45 ft trailer
Sorry about that, I stopped to watch 3 episodes of bargain hunt.....£6 to £30 per tonne.
Depends on wether it’s 80 miles on a motorway or 80 miles of backroads.
Depends on bale size
Depends on loading and unloading facilities
Depends on when you want it doing
For example if it can be any artic or wagon and drag, you can load them to the hilt in about 30 mins with a good driver and loader.
Some powerstations are unload by crane only, so has to be loaded a certain way, we have to leave 4+t off our outfit going into these.
I’ve also known some farmers take 5hrs to load a truck with their tractor and loader.
If you can load and unload at short notice it’ll also be cheaper as can fit in with backloads, quiet spells etc so it’s cheaper. If you specify load or unload times it’ll be more expensive
