The Coal Commodity Management Solution –
Commodity XL

Coal Industry

Commodity Trading and Risk Management

Coal fulfills many important needs worldwide, with its most significant uses in electricity generation, steel production, cement manufacturing, and as a liquid fuel. Coal is transported internationally and nationally by ship and rail.

Coal prices have become much more volatile over the last decade due to a variety of factors such as regulatory restrictions and reserve depletion. Natural longs (producers) and natural shorts (utilities/consumers) enter trades to reduce risk; they require the appropriate commodity management solution to optimally manage their portfolio.
