In Australia, our primary exports are minerals (such as ores) and grains. Due to the vast distances goods need to travel before export, rail is the most effective means of transportation for these often high-volume products.

The nature of these exports and the Australian landscape means that efficient and effective rail infrastructure and systems are critical to maintain low cost transportation, and hence worldwide competitiveness.
