Each year, the Company transports more than 250 million tonnes of Australian commodities, connecting miners, primary producers, and industry with international and domestic markets. It provides customers with integrated freight and logistics solutions across an extensive national rail and road network, traversing Australia.
We operate a coal network made up of approximately 2,670 kilometres of heavy haul rail infrastructure in Central Queensland. We also provide a range of specialist services in rail design, engineering, construction, management and maintenance, that offers large-scale supply chain solutions to a diverse range of customers Australia-wide. Aurizon Holdings Limited listed on the ASX in November 2010, and entered the S&P/ASX50 index in June 2011.
Our integrated business model provides a defensive stream of earnings from our regulated track infrastructure (Central Queensland Coal Network), whilst our rail haulage business is largely leveraged to coal, iron ore, and other bulk commodities.
A core part of our strategy is a multi-year, world class transformation program. This involves identifying and implementing initiatives to create a highly focused, performance-driven culture which will reduce our cost base, drive productivity improvements and create shareholder value.
Aurizon's key milestones are to achieve transformation benefits of $380m between FY2016-FY2018 and an operating ratio of 70% (EBIT margin of 30%) in respect of FY2018. Aurizon is also targeting an average of 10.5% return on invested capital (ROIC) over the FY2016 - FY2017 period. Aurizon's long-term target is to achieve an operating ratio of less than 70% and ROIC of 12-14%.
