SUEK’s easy access to key transport infrastructure enables us to reliably and cost-effectively supply the major markets of Russia, Europe and Asia-Pacific. We are closer to key Asian markets than many of our competitors, so we benefit from reduced transportation costs.
The SUEK Group operates one of the largest fleets of rail cars in Russia for supplying coal to its Russian customers as well as for transporting coal to the ports where it is loaded onto seagoing vessels and shipped to the west and to the east. Our own railway infrastructure which is 746 km long connects the Group’s mining operations and ports to the main railway lines. The Group also operates 190 locomotives and 26 loading stations.
International coal supplies go through our own modern Vanino Bulk Terminal as well as through Murmansk Commercial Seaport and Maly Port, where the Company is one of the main shareholders.
