To what country does the United States export the most coal?
In 2014, the United States exported the most coal to the Netherlands—nearly 12.5 million short tons. This was about 12% of total U.S. coal exports in 2015.
Note: The ports in the Netherlands are major sources for transshipment of coal to other European nations. Therefore, a large portion of this volume may be ultimately consumed by other countries in Europe.
