What services can you use?

Rail 
Our Intermodal and Specialised Services teams have extensive experience operating and managing railroad networks. With over 330 weekly rail departures, we have the highest frequency of departures of any freight provider. And with a network that spans across the entire Australian mainland, connecting all major cities, from north to south, east to west, our rail services are one of the most reliable, economical, and fuel-efficient land-based modes of transport.

Road
Our Road service offers you a wide variety of transport solutions, including scheduled daily runs if you need to move regular volumes of freight, or dedicated project teams to manage all aspects of your freight requirements for bespoke projects. We can also support you through our metro, intrastate, interstate, regional, and remote options.

We are fully compliant with all statutory regulations and guidelines including Chain of Responsibility, Occupational Health and Safety, road traffic authority requirements, dangerous goods obligations, and environmental management requirements.

Coastal Shipping
Our diverse fleet and experience in operating along major shipping lanes, offers you regular, secure, and economical coastal shipping services. Our people are experienced in transport planning, load preparation, and sailing advice, and with integrated IT systems that deliver optimal logistics solutions and schedules that align fleets of road vehicles at both ports, our Coastal Shipping service can deliver your freight seamlessly.

Wharf Solutions 
Our dedicated wharf services are Australian Quarantine (AQIS) and Customs approved and capture all wharf requirements above and beyond moving containers, including import and export cartage, fumigation, and quarantine-accredited services.

Supported by our state-of-the-art technology, our tailored wharf solutions can provide you with strong operational and billing capabilities that deliver real-time information, daily billing, and exception handling.
