Queensland Port Congestion

 After the storm

Cyclone Debbie made landfall in Queensland, Australia on March 28th, hitting the region’s coal mines and transport infrastructure. As a result, shipments from the world’s largest high quality coking coal region were severely disrupted. Via our monitoring of port congestion, we recorded a surge in the number of vessels waiting at anchor in the major Australian coking coal ports in recent weeks, having a knock-on effect on the market as a whole. As operations start to return to normal, we assess the initial impact and lasting effects on the market.
