With specialized product characteristics and logistics needs, mined commodities are particularly exposed to transportation and logistics costs.

While this can present some risk for mined commodity businesses, for PLG Consulting clients, it actually represents an opportunity to turn logistics into a competitive advantage.
Mining and minerals commodity logistics bring unique challenges including asset and infrastructure intensity, specialized handling equipment, changing units of measure across the supply chain, owned or leased assets (railcars, trailers, ships, barges) and complex freight negotiations.
