We have never had any problems with R W Freight, we phone & make a booking, you collect & the exports run smoothly! We ask you to quote our collection references when making a collection and you do, sometimes we book quite late in the week and your staff are very friendly & polite and do everthing they can to get our orders away in the same week. We have never rec'd any complaints from our warehouse saying you have not turned up to collect our goods. Very good indeed!

Impact of Collapsing Chinese Coal Imports

Tags: ,


Global seaborne coal trade is currently projected to drop 1% y-o-y in 2015. This would be the first annual decline in almost three decades.

The driving force behind the slump has been a collapse in Chinese seaborne coal imports, which fell 40% year on year in the first five months of the year.

Imports to China accounted for a quarter of growth in the seaborne coal trade in 2012 and 65% in 2013. But china’s import demand has been in steady decline since the beginning of 2104.

The majority of coal in China is sourced domestically, which means that even a small change in coal use can impact heavily on seaborne imports.
