Should I explain what a coop is? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooperative
I think how it would is that a bunch of buyers pool money together to get a semi load delivered to a central location, then everyone brings their pickups and trailers and get their full pallets. 22 tons is the max load?
Some things I think we'd need: An escrow agent to hold the cash? A waiver everyone signs that we won't get sued if your trailer axle breaks (I have to sign one at a place I pick up wood pellets). A loading dock, heavy-duty forklift, and operator. Hamburgers. What else?
I expect lots of people would have to make two trips to the central point to pick up enough coal for the winter. That might make for a long day for the forklift operator. Any other things to consider?
