Logistics and Infrastructure
Recognising that operation efficiency is a key differentiator to achieving high productivity, Agritrade Resources, through our subsidiary PT Megastar, provides contract mining services and develops infrastructure and logistics for the Group.
PT Megastar consistently seeks to improve our supply chain management by investing in infrastructure and upgrading equipment. An ideal example of the integrated “pit-to-port” solution is our exclusive right to operate and maintain the Pertamina Road, a 41 km hauling road from our SEM mine to Telang Baru port via hauling trucks. The exclusive 10 years tender, awarded by Pertamina, has enabled the group to optimise and improve the logistics certainty and production efficiency. The increased productivity allows us to pass the cost savings to our customers, further enhancing our competitive edge.
Complementing our hauling road management is our modern fleet of equipment consisting of trucks, excavators, water tankers and heavy mining equipment that improve our utilization and efficiency.
Trading and Marketing
Agritrade Resources markets various coal products produced by the Group and distributes it through our marketing arm, Agritrade Resources Asia (Pte Ltd). Other than selling coal produced from our own operations, Agritrade Resources Asia also trades and brokers coal from other coal producers to supplement our production and hedge against price volatility.
Our team consist of dedicated professionals with years of experience in the coal industry. As an established and reputable coal miner, Agritrade Resources has built strong long-term relationships based on our consistent track record in meeting customers’ requirements from scheduling, logistics to pricing.
With decades of experience under our belt, we have the technical sophistication and economies of scale to tailor our solutions to meet our customers’ needs in Asia.
Agritrade Resources responded to the growing global need for cleaner, renewable, sustainable energy sources with our investment in a biodiesel plant in Arkansas, United States. Strategically located near Memphis, a major biofuel refining and distribution centre, the biodiesel plant caters to the increasing demand for renewable energy in the United States.
The biodiesel plant sits on a wide area of 38.2 acres of land and is conveniently situated beside the Mississippi River, decreasing overall logistics cost as it is accessible by water, road and rail transportation. To maximize profitability, the biodiesel plant will be retrofitted to accommodate multi-feedstock including yellow grease, rendered animal fats, inedible corn oil and refined vegetable oil. This will help to decrease the cost of production as the Group can select the most cost competitive feedstock.
The biodiesel plant has a production capacity of 137,000 metric tonnes per annum.
