Surge in Jiangyin’s coal imports

11 December 2013
The Yangtze port of Jiangyin in Jiangsu province imported 1.24m tons of coals valued at US$123m in the first 11 months of this year. This was the first time that the annual imported coal volume has exceeded 1m tons, according to the Jiangyin Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau.

The import volume increased 80 per cent from the previous year, while prices were down 24 per cent. The major product category was steam coal, a grade between bituminous coal and anthracite, once widely used as a fuel for steam locomotives. Most of the imported coal came from North Korea, Russia, Australia and Indonesia.
