This month, World Coal focuses on the transportation and logistical aspects of the coal industry. Articles analyse the importance of understanding the coal supply chain from mine to power plant via rail, port, sea etc., while also looking at the equipment used in the transportation of coal. We look at cranes and grabs, shiploaders and unloaders, train and barge transportation, and advances in offshore transhipment. The issue features World Coal’s Port & Terminal Review, in which we review some recent coal loading and unloading projects from around the world. Articles from Jonny Sultoon, Wood Mackenzie, Santu Tiwari and Deepak Kumar, GlobalData, Evgeny Masternak, En+, and Tomasz Konik, Deloitte, explore the European coal market in World Coal’s regional report. In this month’s industry view, Mike Maddison, Deloitte, explains why the coal industry must begin to change current attitudes to cyber security in an increasingly digital age.
