Rail in Australia

Australia operates the sixth largest rail network in the world, transporting people and freight on over 36,000km of track across the country daily. Optimized  planning, scheduling and execution of rail services are crucial for Australia’s rail operators to maintain high standards of efficiency.

Rail plays a central role on Australia’s transportation infrastructure and is a significant contributor to the economy, providing employment to over 140,000 people directly and indirectly, and facilitating industrial output through efficient movement of freight. Key economic pillars in Australia, such as energy, materials and agriculture, are highly dependent on the rail network.

As rail systems become more complex, coupled with rising demands by Australia’s industrial sectors for improvements in productivity, rail operators increasingly require higher levels of network optimization.
