We are one of the largest bulk commodity traders globally and as such, we have developed an extensive global system that can help our clients monetize our relationships, economies of scale and flexibility.
Javelin, through its risk management systems and extensive access to financial markets, is able to warehouse and hedge significant risk and as such, provide short and long term flexible volume and price contracts for met coal purchase and sale. To reinforce these flows, Javelin also commits to multi-year rail, barge, port and ocean freight agreements.

Javelin enters into short and long-term offtake agreements with producers, giving them access to Javelin’s network of global customers, logistics, capital and financial relationships. We can provide offtake agreements with flexible delivery and pricing structures tailored to the supplier’s needs. Javelin accepts delivery ex-mine, ex-port or free on-board vessel.
Javelin enters into short and long-term supply agreements with producers, steel companies and cokeries globally. Javelin has access to a number of different met coal qualities such as High Vol A and B, Mid Vol, Low Vol, PCI and anthracite. As such, Javelin can tailor coal supply agreements to provide flexibility on qualities, including as individual brands of coal, or blends thereof, as well as flexibility on volumes and price, including fixed price, indexed priced or steel linked price structures.
Javelin can provide delivered mill gate met coal contracts and manage all aspects of the physical delivery including rail, barge, truck or ocean freight logistics as well as the delivery of pre-blended products from multiple supply sources at ports globally. Our extensive global relationships with logistic providers allow our customers to benefit from robust delivery performance, known cost and flexibility in supply.
Javelin provides coal technical services to steel mills and cokeries globally. We identify the lowest all in cost of coal (or blend of coals) to help minimise the variable cost of steel production. Subsequently, we work alongside our clients’ procurement team to support their analysis of the coals and help them during the coal trialling process providing intial samples for lab testing, larger samples for pilot oven testing and a final delivery for trialling at cookery or direct into blast furnace.
Javelin also supports producers when bringing new coal products to market by introducing the new coal to the right clients and helping them in their marketing efforts. Javelin’s technical team works with the producer’s clients to trial the coals in order for them to be accepted as an approved source
Javelin invests and provides working capital to support our customer activities. This can be as simple as providing customers with prepayments, delayed payment terms or inventory and accounts receivable financing or more complex, such as debt and equity financings. Javelin can also invest directly into the logistics chain to open up new delivery solutions.
