We entered into the coal market in 2006 and today we deliver around 15 million tonnes each year to customers in Asia, Europe and the Americas. We trade, are involved in production and have long-term supply contracts with mining companies in the US, Canada, Indonesia, Australia, South Africa and Russia.
With such a diverse supply base we can meet a wide range of customer requirements in terms of specific origins and grades, for both steam coal and anthracite. Our logistics network uses a dedicated fleet of dry bulk vessels operated on time charter. We are investing in the development of port and loading facilities serving the key coal trading routes, most notably through our 35% shareholding in Matola Coal terminal in Maputo, Mozambique.
In addition, we have long-term capacity rights in several other port or terminal facilities.
We understand that every market is different and that our customers and their requirements are as diverse as the world in which we live. With 40 offices worldwide our colleagues comprise over 60 nationalities giving us a diversity of thinking which we believe translates into a greater understanding of our customers and enabling us to make better and more informed decisions.
