STEEL END DUMPS NEEDED IN OCTOBER FOR 100 LOADS FROM MOUNT MORRIS, IL TO E. CHICAGO, IN

Looking for end dump carriers that would be interested in an estimated 100 loads (not expecting a carrier to run all 100 loads) to be picked up in Mount Morris, IL to be delivered to E. Chicago, IN, starting in the 2nd week of October. Material will be HMS and P&S. Please reply with your email address or feel free to call me at 224-381-5533 to discuss further information. Thank you.

HMS is short for Heavy melt steel (chunks of 12 inch I beam around 5 feet in length usually). P&S is prepared steel 2 foot and under, both are generally dropped in the trailer from a magnet, or grapple. Hence, steel dump trailer preferred.
