The hauling method that will be used in the coal mining activity depends on the distance. For short distance, most coal is transported by conveyor or truck. For longer distances in the domestic market, the coal is transported by rail or barge, or alternatively coal is mixed with water to form a coal slurry and transported through pipelines.
Coal transportation is the subsequent process after the coal mining process is completed. There is a series of stages that must be carried out in order to bring coal to the customers. After exploitation, the coal will be stored as stockpile for later transportion to the coal port. From the coal port, the coal is brought by barges to the cargo container vessel to be sent to customers. From the multiple stages of coal transportation, the Company provides coal transportation services from the stockpile up to the port using two-vessel trailer trucks.
