Atlantic Coal has opened its new rail loading facility at its Stockton coal mine in Pennsylvania. The new facility started operations on 11 August with the dispatch of anthracite to a steel industry customer and a sugar processing company.
The rail loading facility will allow the company to provide a more efficient service to its customers, as well as reducing loading and transportation costs, it said in a press release. Previously the company has been reliant on trucking coal to third-party rail loading facilities.
‘This ne facility now provides us with a significant commercial advantage in supplying our increased production of anthracite to customers across the US and potentially to Canada and to East Coast ports for exports,” said Atlantic Coal’s Managing Director, Steve Best.
The facility was constructed over a period of two months in partnership with Reading, Blue Mountain and Northern Railroad (RBMNR)
