Hunt Deltel’s New Salt Yard begun operations on 20th April 2017.
Needless to say, the warehouse provides all-round higher standard of hygiene, security and stock control. With the elimination of exposure to the elements, salt loss and leaching will be cut to an absolute minimum – good news for our customers as well as for the generations to come who may well have other plans for the land currently occupied by our salt yard.
As the drivers get accustomed to manoeuvring in a closed environment, the stevedores are appreciating the benefit of working in the shelter of the warehouse. While there is still the inescapable humidity of the tropics, stevedores are now protected from UV rays, windblown grit as well as rain. The delicate task of salt stacking is made safer by the need to stack properly within the defined space, and with minimal salt clumping, the task of handling and moving the salt has also been facilitated.
