We had a new client in Italy and we used another forwarder who let us down badly by delivering the cargo late and not keeping us correctly informed. That's why I did a search on the internet for freight forwarders providing groupage export services to Italy and came across R W Freight. We used your freight services to ship another consignment to the same client in Pergine Valsugana, Italy. We are glad we came across your company because your service was superb and I was kept very well informed. In turn I could keep our client correctly updated. I will definitely utilise your services whenever and where ever possible.

Polish Miners Block Cheap Coal Imports from Russia

Tags: , , ,


Miners in Poland protesting against imports of cheap Russian coal have blocked a border route into northern Poland, according to mining union leaders. More than 200 workers blocked the passage in order to protest against imports of Russian coal.

Polish mines are having difficulty competing with the cheaper product from Russia.Poland’s giant coal fields produced 76.5 million tonnes in 2013 and the fossil fuel supplies around 90% of Poland’s overall power needs.

It exported 10.6 million tonnes in 2013, but it also imported 10.8 million tonnes from Russia and the Czech Republic in the same year. Because of a combination of relatively high production and labour costs, Polish coal is more expensive than coal from neighbouring producers.

According to the miners’ union, the state imports 80% of the coal for which it tenders, as the exporters use ‘dumping’ prices.
