We have steadily built up traded volumes in recent years to become one of only two truly global market operators. 

As the coal market becomes more challenging, not only with several major economies acting to reduce their reliance on coal in the energy mix but with increasing competition from alternative energy sources,  Trafigura remains committed to the market.

Our focus is on developing advantageous origination strategies, novel trading flows, and innovative delivery methods that will allow us to continue to build volumes and grow market share.

We apply these approaches across the full range of thermal coal qualities, in all the major points of origin, and across all the major global sales markets. We also serve coking coal customers across the world and are growing our presence in coke and petcoke.

Our global sales network, strength and reliability as a contractual counterparty continue to generate opportunities. Our positions evolve with changing patterns of trade and relative pricing. But our approach remains fundamentally unchanged: we employ our extensive physical trading positions to deliver valuable intermediation and logistics services to our clients.
