Aurizon (ASX: AZJ) is Australia’s largest rail freight operator and a top 50 ASX company.
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.
The Company also owns and operates one of the world’s largest coal rail networks, linking more than 50 mines with three major ports in Queensland.
Aurizon has four major product lines for customers: Network, Coal, Iron Ore and Freight. The Operations business 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.
The Company’s success and future growth is linked to the key demand drivers of the Australian resources sector in global markets and the ongoing strength of the Australian economy.
Aurizon is well placed to benefit from the continued long-term growth in demand for coal and iron ore, particularly from fast growing Asian economies such as China and India.
Aurizon has implemented a major reform and business transformation program since its privatisation and listing on the Australian Securities Exchange in November 2010. This transformation is embracing every dimension– safety, customer service, operational excellence, productivity, and technology and innovation – as the Company strives for world-class performance.
