October 2010

The October issue of World Coal tackles the “biggest headache” in the coal supply chain: transportation. Michael King sheds some light on volatile shipping costs, while the issue also includes contributions from Freightliner Heavy Haul, Alimak Hek, GBRf, Cargotec and ThyssenKrupp Fördertechnik. The spotlight feature discusses coal trading, while we head to Europe for the regional report. Speaking of heading to Europe, the World Coal team will be present at the 30th Coaltrans World Coal Conference in Amsterdam this month: profiles of some of the other exhibitors can also be found in this issue.

Rough Waters
Bulk carrier freight rates have been volatile in 2010. Demand for seaborne movements of coal remains strong, but with so many new vessels due for delivery, and the iron ore market subject to renewed pricing fluctuations, further swings in shipping costs are likely in the months to come, writes Michael King.
