OF LAND TRANSPORT
Transporting your freight by rail can help prevent, and reduce, road fatalities and road trauma. Over 200 people die every year from heavy vehicle crashes and over 1500 people a year are hospitalised from these incidents.
The cost to the Australian economy of heavy vehicle accidents has been estimated to be up to $3 billion every year.
IS COST EFFICIENT
The accident cost associated with road freight transport is ten times that for rail freight transport on a per tonne kilometre basis.
