RBCT said that coal exports fell to 73.47 Mt from its record high of 76.47 Mt in 2017.


The largest coal export facility in Africa aims to export at least 77 Mt of coal in 2019, which is the same as its 2018 target.


The Asian market accounted for 81.6% of RBCT’s coal exports, with India taking the lion’s share. Europe took 10.1% of the exports.


RBCT experienced port closures of 36 days in 2018, down from 38 days in 2017, due to adverse weather conditions.
