I've been lurking here for over a month. Some very interesting topics.
I've posted to this one because some of you need easier access to coal, and I may have a solution if some of you want to get together on this.
Trucking is probably your best option. 'Super Sacks' could be used for the coal. 'Super Sacks' will hold 2,000 to 4,000 lbs. each. and would already be pre-weighed.
They could be loaded into a Van, Reefer, or on a Flatbed trailer. Multiple stops could be lined up with the trucking company chosen.
I'm a trucker, and I've hauled 'Super Sack' loads of all types of minerals and metals to various places over the years.
Edited to add: For those of you in New England......The coal could be a great 'Backhaul' for one of your local trucking companies to get the driver back home.
