With coal prices historically lower and more stable than oil and gas, coal is likely to remain the most affordable fuel for power generation in many developing and industrialized countries for decades. In order to control costs, major coal users need to focus on supply chain and inventory efficiency as well as managing quality specification from contract to delivery.
