To what country does the U.S. export the most coal?
In 2012, the United States exported the most coal to the Netherlands — more than 13.5 million short tons.
Note: The ports in the Netherlands are a significant point for transshipment to other European nations. Thus, a large portion of this volume may be ultimately consumed by other countries in Europe.
