Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) is one of Australia’s largest freight rail network owners with 20 years of experience in operating, maintaining and building rail infrastructure. Each day, across five states, our network transports intermodal containers, agricultural products, general freight and passenger services, as well as hundreds of thousands of tonnes of coal and minerals. This gets freight off roads which reduces congestion, is good for the environment and improves safety for motorists and communities. ARTC was established to modernise rail in Australia. Our experienced team has delivered billions of dollars worth of investment to revive our rail network, providing the transport and logistics industry with a safe and reliable network to support the many industries that Australia’s economy depends on. We are also building the Inland Rail route between Melbourne and Brisbane. This will transform the transport supply chain, providing a world-class rail network capable of meeting Australia’s long-term freight needs.
