Rail freight services all the major capitals, markets, regional freight centres and import/export ports in Australia.
While heavier goods moved in large quantities are a natural fit to rail with its ability to carry heavy tonnages in a single journey, there are many other opportunities for your business – be it fast moving consumer products, bulk goods, regional freight or an import/export task.
Intermodal freight allows you to enjoy the benefits of all modes of transport. Rail integrated into your supply chain provides an efficient, secure and cost effective way to move your goods across the country, be it full container loads, refrigerated goods, palletised and non-palletised freight.
Rail is great at moving large volumes of freight, in and out of port, in a single journey. Rail provides a comprehensive, controlled solution for a range of sectors including:
- agricultural products
- mineral resources
- waste products
Rail and logistics operators can deliver your whole-of-supply-chain supply requirements including:

Bulk trains are in use within a number of industries and are successfully carrying products in industries such as:

Bulk freight is a natural fit with rail; we can shift large volumes as well as it being a secure, efficient and predictable method of transport.
