Austrans renews partnership with Pacific National

A 10-year contract between transport and logistics company, Austrans, and rail freight operator, Pacific National, was announced earlier this month.

This deal supports their mission to decarbonise the national supply chain by moving more freight on rail and demonstrates an investment in people, equipment and technology.

“This announcement solidifies the 37-year relationship between Pacific National and Austrans,” said Austrans Managing Director, Greg O’Shea.

“Pacific National’s performance and customer-centric focus are unmatched in rail and align seamlessly with Austrans’ core values, which have been a driving force behind our business growth.

“Pacific National’s support has helped Austrans evolve from a small freight forwarder into a nationally recognised presence in Australia.

“I am thrilled about our future to grow with Pacific National and the additional benefits this collaboration will bring to our customers and the environment. Here’s to pushing boundaries for our end customers, fostering a less carbon intensive future in the national supply chain, and delivering what matters together.”

Paul Scurrah, CEO and Managing Director of Pacific National, said the contract is an excellent outcome for Austrans customers.

“Pacific National is Australia’s leading containerised rail freight provider, and it continues to invest heavily in people, rollingstock and terminal assets, and new and improved technologies,” he said.

“These investment initiatives, combined with Pacific National’s existing depth of nationwide expertise and operational capacity, provides Austrans with added scope to expand and thrive in the national supply chain. Rail freight also provides a lower emissions transport solution to both Austrans and its many end customers.

“Pacific National aims to be Australia’s most trusted and respected logistics partner by delivering what matters, and we are excited to continue transforming the intermodal containerised market with our long-term partner Austrans.”
