The terminal has an annual coal capacity of 1 million short tons (approximately 0.9 million metric tonnes).[2][3]

In 2016, an appeal by citizens to stop coal-handling at the Chipco Terminal was denied by the Mobile City Council. The company admitted that it had been storing coal since 2010 because it had federal and state permission, but the city knew nothing about it until a citizen complained. Reports stated that the terminal had capacity to store up to 1.3 million short tons of coal.[4]
