Movit believes that, Rail plays a vital role in Australia’s freight system. Freight rail excels in moving bulk commodities, such as grains, timber, steel and coal. In this way, rail facilitates a significant proportion of Australia’s agricultural and mining exports, moving commodities from regional areas to coastal ports for export. Rail is less competitive against road freight for non-bulk commodities. However, rail does have a strong presence in freight movements between the eastern states and Perth.
