Note: The Achilles Heel.
The Big 4 must have rail delivery to compete with the small NH3
plants. The chances of the railroads retooling their railroad is nil
Rail delivery is a form of storage. Those who control the storage
control the price. The dysfunctional NH3 pipelines are at risk with
smaller plants on site making on time delivery.
Barges on the Mississippi, Columbia and Snake River are the safest
and most economical way to move ammonia.
Restraining delivery is a key marketing trick of the Big 4. FOMO,
Fear of Missing Out works a marketing technique.Creating false demand by holding back the supply since the storage
of the railroad is gone. That means trucks.
Investments in barges could overcome a lot of economic problems.
