Alpha Commodities enjoys several key advantages


In over 25 years, Alpha has never failed to supply as committed. This is our biggest source of pride. Our motto is simple: "We will only commit to what we can supply".

High Quality Products:

Alpha offers a wide range of salt types, each suited to its end use. We deal only with superior salt from trustworthy producers and our customers can rely on us never to supply bad quality salt, however scarce the supply may be. Top grade salt means smooth running of deicing spreaders and therefore greater cost efficiency.

Multiple Source Supply:

Alpha supplies salt from various producers around the globe with whom we have long-term exclusive agreements, thus promising reliable and independent supply at any given time, even during the severe winters of the past few years.

Logistics Expertise:

Alpha enjoys years-long good relations with major ship owners, and utilizes the large volume of its business to charter vessels below the market level, thus gaining a fundamental advantage in the salt market, in which freight is often the primary component of the gross cost.

Strategic Local Supply:

Our operations in France, India and Canada allow us to be close to the local market at all times with a constant supply of stock which allows us to effectively supply urgent requests as well as small volume demands which require transshipment and supply via small vessels, barges or inland transportation.
