Our rail-based Intermodal service has the capacity to move millions of tonnes annually, right to our customers’ front door.

Aurizon’s Intermodal freight business offers end to end and door to door rail based solutions for the transport of containerised goods. We specialise in the movement of full container loads but also move palletised products and everything in between.

We understand the importance of our place in customers’ supply chain and the ongoing impact of not delivering on a promised timeline. Subsequently, our focus and determination is on providing innovation, introducing ways to decrease costs and increasing our service to our customers.

Our Queensland intermodal business leads the market in rail based delivery to the regional centres north of Brisbane. We also have the ability to increase depot and train capacity during peak, catering for a variety of product types and distribution methods utilising container units, bulk freight or pallets.

Everything we do is driven by one simple objective, to deliver goods, on time, on budget, and safely as promised. Our safe and dependable delivery is driven by service frequency, flexibility and efficiency.
On 14 August 2017, Aurizon announced its intention to exit its Intermodal business through a combination of closure and sale.

Subject to regulatory approval, Aurizon has signed a binding agreement with a consortium of Pacific National and Linfox to sell its Queensland Intermodal business, and a separate binding agreement with Pacific National to sell its Acacia Ridge Intermodal Terminal.  The sale transaction is expected to be completed by June 2018.

The remainder of Aurizon’s Intermodal business (outside of Queensland) was closed in December 2017.

Carbon Calculator

We have developed a carbon calculator which enables the comparison of GHG emissions of rail versus road transportation. The calculator will provide a comparison of the carbon and safety benefits of using rail versus road.
