Total throughput via the three key Australian coal terminals operated by North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP), Northeast Australia, dropped to 13-month low of 10.7 million tonnes, down further by 2.8% on month or 14.6% on year, according to the company’s latest data, which was mainly due to the weakening in global coal demand and the interruption of shipment last month.
The three terminals, comprising Abbot Point, Hay Point Coal Terminal
and Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal in Queensland, only handle coal in commodity
service for now, with most for exports, and Dalrymple Bay was the largest,
handling about 5 million tonnes of coal in March, Mysteel Global understood
from the official data.
