Moving more freight on rail

Promoting greater use of safe, sustainable rail to make the most of all modes of freight transport.

Growing demand

Rail will be crucial to meeting our growing freight task. Rail is expected to meet almost three quarters of the growth in demand for freight services expected in the next decade.

A sustainable choice

Moving more freight on rail delivers tangible environmental and safety benefits for the wider community. Rail freight produces 16 times less carbon pollution than road freight.

World-first innovation

Australia's mining industry in the Pilbara region has led the world in the delivery of fully autonomous heavy haul trains. One autonomous train in the Pilbara carries the equivalent of 631 B-Double trucks.
