Background

CNX is the only East Coast terminal served by two rail lines – Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation, and provides coal transshipment from rail cars to ocean-going vessels. The terminal can load approximately 16 million tons of coal per year. The terminal began operations in 1983. The Terminal has processed over ten million tons of coal per annum on average since 2010, and exported a record 12.9 million tons in 2011.[1]

During 2008, a total of 8 million tonnes of coal was shipped through the terminal, making the company the largest coal exporter in Baltimore. Thirty-four percent of that coal was produced by owner CONSOL Energy. CONSOL has multi-year contracts with European power producers.[1]
