    Westshore Terminals close to Vancouver is the largest coal terminal on North America’s west coast, which mainly sends coal overseas by ship to Asia, South America and Europe.

    Coal from western Canada is also shipped from Thunder Bay to domestic and international destinations.

     

    Coal sent for export is mainly transported by rail. Coal can also be mixed with water and sent via pipeline in a slurry. This is more efficient than train or truck, but uses a lot of water and is not common in Canada for long-distance transport.
