As the world’s largest-private sector coal company, Peabody is uniquely positioned to deliver value to customers and partners.

We serve customers in the United States, Europe, Australia, China, Indonesia, South Africa and South America.

Peabody sells coal produced from our operations, and trades and brokers coal from other coal producers to supplement its production, hedge against price volatility and satisfy demand for coal supplies where the company does not operate mines. The company also trades emission allowances and provides a wide array of transportation-related services.

We seek to build long-term customer relationships, and have the unique scale and sophistication to satisfy nearly any customer need, anywhere in the world. We know coal, and we know how to add value from pricing to scheduling to transportation.

Global reach, superior service, minute-by-minute and hour by hour… that is the COALTRADE and COALSALES advantage.
