Freight Australia Commences Daily Melbourne – Sydney Services
Private rail operator, Freight Australia has today announced that it has taken the next step in the expansion of its freight operations by introducing a daily intermodal service between Melbourne and Sydney.
The service, which departs Melbourne and Sydney each afternoon for arrival the following morning, will also call at intermediate centres enroute.
The introduction of the regular services follows consultation with a wide range of potential clients and testing of the market through running trains between Freight Australia’s Melbourne Terminal at Dynon and the Cooks River Rail Terminal in Sydney. It also builds on Freight Australia’s regional services already provided on the corridor, such as those to Albury / Wodonga.
Freight Australia’s CEO, Marinus van Onselen, is upbeat about the prospects of the new service saying that, “it will give the market place a serious rail alternative on the tracks between our two largest cities”.
He further added that, “the commencement of the services reinforces Freight Australia’s commitment to growing its already established position in the New South Wales rail freight market. This service follows the successful development of Freight Australia’s other business in New South Wales including bulk fuel and dedicated grain services, highlighting Freight Australia’s flexible and customer focussed freight solutions”.
