Qualified PGG Coal Suppliers: Will they be?

In order to supply coal at PGG’s set prices and avoid the often unfair coal price increase of the middlemen, a network of qualified coal suppliers had to start operating in August. They were to replace licensed coal depots and operate franchises. PGG remains the owner of the coal sold in the warehouse belonging to the network of Qualified Coal Suppliers and PGG will determine the prices of the coal. In June, the hiring of warehouses interested in entering the PGG coal sales system was announced. The announcement ended on June 27.

Our sales experience to date convinces us that the optimal solution will be the further distribution of coal through the online shop with the simultaneous improvement of the goods receiving logistics thanks to the implementation of standardized transport services. By introducing the formula of qualified coal suppliers, we will guarantee a uniform standard of logistics services and guarantee the lowest possible transport prices – explains Tomasz Rogala, President of PGG.

The network of Qualified Coal Suppliers is not yet operational. The company informs that all notifications are still being verified.

Bogusław Ziętek, head of Sierpnia 80, says PGG-qualified coal suppliers do not exist and will not be there. He believes that PGG’s requirements regarding partners are impossible to meet. And this is the obligation of monitoring, insurance or adequate infrastructure.

The unionist also warns that coal will certainly be lacking for individual and municipal consumers in Poland this winter.
