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, totaling over 53,000 units, 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. SUEK’s fleet satisfies over 80% of company’s transportation needs. 65% of our fleet consist of high-capacity cars, with 75- and 77-tonne capacity and a service life of up to 32 years. These were designed based on SUEK's bulkcargo optimisation requirements, and enable us to decrease electricity consumption per tonne and, therefore, carbon footprint of transportation. 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, providing access to the national railway network, and 16 loading stations.

International coal supplies go through our own modern Vanino Bulk Terminal and Murmansk Commercial Seaport as well as Maly Port, where the company is one of the main shareholders.
