About The Workshop

This two days executive workshop is targeted to provide an overview of Coal terminals and their role as the most crucial link in logistics supply chain. There is a whole range of Coal Terminals and Ports from very basic barge loading / unloading systems connecting with anchorage operations to the most modern state-of-the-art coal loading / unloading terminals depending upon market size and volume to be handled. Ownership, operatorship and commercial aspect also vary based on users’ requirements and risk perceptions. While large scale coal miners, suppliers, users and traders tend to control the supply chain by using their own dedicated terminals, common user coal terminals are also equally important and these common user terminals cater to requirements of a number of users requiring terminal services for their coal handling requirements. This workshop targets to enable participants to understand comprehensive process to develop coal handling terminals from site selection to hinterland mapping, assessment of market potential, optimization of investment in cargo handling, storage and hinterland connectivity. The workshop also aims to provide steps involved in process of environment management, detailed project report, concession agreement and understanding other commercial terms for coal terminals. Another objective of the workshop is to prepare the participants to excel in operations of coal terminals for satisfaction of customers and all stake holders in order to achieve desired financial objectives.

Significance / relevance of the workshop

During the last two decades, trade volume of coal has shown a significant increase, reaching a level of over 1400 Million MT in the year 2014. Main factor attributable to the steady growth in coal trade is the economics of coal consumption as fuel in comparison with other alternative fuels. For the very same factor of economics, in a relatively low valued bulk commodity like coal, logistics cost is the most controllable element in the entire value chain. Effective and efficient logistics management makes the most significant contribution in the profitability of coal business value chain. At both exports and imports end of the logistics chain, it is essential to create optimum infrastructure and handling, storage and hinterland connectivity /evacuation capacity in line with volume of commodity to be handled. The workshop will use a number of examples of coal terminals in different parts of the world and provide a broad overview to enable participants to draw on best practices which can be adapted as per their own operative environment.

Deliverables

At the end of this workshop, the participants should be able to:

  • Understand significance and role of coal terminals in national and regional context
  • Learn the process of coal terminal development along with detailed steps involved at each stage of development
  • Develop comprehensive understanding about market, customer classification, expectation and aligning service levels & pricing with customer priorities.
  • Get deep knowledge about Coal logistics chain and total logistics cost comparison with calculation of sea freight, hinterland connectivity and land logistics costs.
  • Learn about Port operations and cargo handling systems for coal.
  • Understand financial calculations for coal terminal investment and operation.
