Atlas has been supplying global seaborne markets since 2008. We supply iron ore to buyers all over the world in two key forms: Atlas Fines and Atlas Lump.
There’s a high demand for our consistent and high-quality iron ore products from steel mills in China, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam.

Our Exports & Marketing Port: Utah Point
Atlas exports iron ore through the Utah Point facility in Port Hedland. We began exporting from Utah Point as one of its foundation customers and assisted in funding its development.
This multi-use port is owned and operated by the Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) and is set up for truck delivery of product into multiple stockyards. Atlas has developed Stockyard 2 for its own use, while Stockyard 1 is multi-user. Multiple footprints enable blending and export of multiple products, with facilities suitable for Post-Panamax and Mini Cape vessels.
