Thermal coal

Partnering with our customers to meet the global demand for high quality thermal coal in New South Wales - Australia’s largest thermal coal producing state.

Thermal coal, also known as steam coal, is used in the production of electricity.

Australia’s high quality thermal coal is much sought after internationally for its low impurities and consequent low emissions.

At Pacific National we hold a leading share of the New South Wales coal haulage market – including the Hunter Valley and Illawarra coal regions – partnering with our customers to meet this global demand through safe and responsive rail haulage solutions.

We collaborate with our customers to identify mutually beneficial supply chain efficiencies, establishing genuine partnerships based on safe operations, accurate communications, and strong focus on reliable service and delivery.

We envisage stable demand for high quality Australian thermal coal in the coming decades, and are committed to championing our customers’ success, domestically and globally.
