Event Overview


Only 2 places remaining!

Immerse yourself in an intensive 5-day training course that will bring you up to speed with international coal dynamics, contracts negotiation and transport logistics.
The course is delivered by a faculty of experts representing the cream of the crop in their given field from metallurgical coal, coal quality management, and shipping to legal aspects of coal, paper trading, emissions trading and environmental issues.
It’s tried and tested! Now moving in to its 29th edition, the International Coal Supply Contracts and Transport Logistics will once again be directed by coal industry guru Hugh Lee, who has over 40 years of experience.  

  • Learn, negotiate, participate: Prepare yourself for the world of coal and understand the approach to the market from both the supply and demand side.
  • Put theory in to practice: Simulate contracts negotiations and real to life force majeure situations that replicate the supply and transportation of coal.
  • Gain hands on experience: Visit Didcot A Power Station and Bristol Port. We allocate a full day to site visits!
