Our Members



At ARTC, their goal is to keep Australia moving.

They are a vital link in the nation’s transport supply chain – building, maintaining and operating rail lines around the country to move freight and passengers safely, reliably and efficiently.

More freight on rail means less congestion on roads and fewer carbon emissions, which is good for businesses, motorists, the environment and local communities across Australia.

That’s why they continue to invest in their 8,500km rail network that spans five states, 39 worksites and more than 50 First Nations, which we acknowledge as the Traditional Custodians of these lands.

World-class projects like Inland Rail are an example of how they’re expanding and modernising their network. A once-in-a-generation project, Inland Rail will complete the backbone of Australia’s freight network and enhance supply chains by facilitating train journeys of less than 24 hours between Melbourne and Brisbane.

Established in 1998, they employ more than 2,000 people who help manage the daily transit of around 440 freight and passenger trains across our network that we’re striving to make increasingly resilient, responsive and digitally-enabled.

And by continually improving the service that we provide to our customers and the local communities in which they operate, they’re also strengthening connections between their regions, cities and ports for the good of the economy and the Australian public.
