Aurizon (formerly QR National) is Australia’s largest rail freight operator with more than 145 years of experience. Each day the Company moves thousands of tonnes of coal, iron ore and other minerals as well as agricultural and general freight around the nation.
Aurizon operates and manages a coal network made up of approximately 2,300km of heavy haul rail infrastructure.
The Company also provides a range of specialist services in rail design, engineering, construction, management and maintenance, and offers large-scale supply chain solutions to a diverse range of customers Australia-wide.
Aurizon has played a critical role in the economic development and growth of the minerals-rich state of Queensland, providing the transport backbone for one of the world’s largest coal supply chains. Over recent years Aurizon has extended its business focus beyond its Queensland heritage and applied its expertise and capabilities to coal and iron ore opportunities in New South Wales and Western Australia.
Aurizon comprises three separate but integrated operating businesses – Coal, Freight and Network Services. Aurizon Coal is the world’s largest rail transporter of coal from mine to port for export markets and transports approximately 200 million tonnes of coal per annum. Aurizon Network Services operates and manages the Central Queensland Coal Network, which is the largest export coal rail network in Australia and comprises the major coal systems in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. It is also one of the largest rollingstock maintenance and manufacturing businesses in the Southern Hemisphere.
Aurizon Freight transports approximately 60 million tonnes per annum of bulk minerals and commodities including iron ore, agricultural products, mining and industrial inputs and general and containerised freight. The business is Australia’s largest iron ore haulier outside of Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
Aurizon’s performance and future growth is linked to the key demand drivers of the Australian resources sector. As a result, the Company is well placed to benefit from the expected growth in demand for coal and iron ore, particularly from emerging Asian economies such as China and India.
