Get to Know Aurizon
We deliver, as promised.
Aurizon is helping grow regional Australia by delivering bulk commodities to the world. To achieve this, the Company has three major avenues: Network, Coal and Bulk. Aurizon is also a leading specialist in the services of 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 value 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 Japan, China and India.
Why invest in Aurizon?
Aurizon is Australia’s largest rail-based transport business and a top 100 ASX company.
Each year, we transport more than 250 million tonnes of Australian commodities, connecting miners, primary producers, and industry with international and domestic markets. We provide customers with integrated freight and logistics solutions across an extensive national rail and road network, traversing Australia.
We own and operate the Central Queensland Coal Network, which is made up of approximately 2,670 kilometres of heavy haul rail infrastructure. We also provide a range of specialist services in rail design, engineering, construction, management and maintenance, that offers large-scale supply chain solutions to a diverse range of customers Australia-wide.
Our integrated business model provides a defensive stream of earnings from our regulated track infrastructure (Central Queensland Coal Network), while our rail haulage business is largely leveraged to the export of bulk commodities.
Our strategy is focused on optimising and strengthening our existing portfolio by continually reviewing and improving our performance. In parallel, we are continuing to transform our business to improve our cost structure and deliver value for money for our customers, while ensuring we remain an efficient, competitive and sustainable business.
Further investment in technology and innovation will continue to feature in our operations, not only to drive labour and asset productivity, but to also deliver safety and environmental benefits. As part of our strategy, we are also striving to increase the precision of our Central Queensland operations, on-time performance and adherence to schedule through planning and productivity improvements.
We are committed to providing value to shareholders through managing our capital effectively and returning surplus capital to investors where possible. Since FY2016, over $4b has been returned to shareholders though dividends and buybacks.
