This partnership is also aimed at mitigating risks associated with global supply chain disruptions.

Pacific National has secured a 10-year extension to its existing contract with Linfox, reaffirming the ongoing collaboration in national linehaul rail freight services. This extension maintains the operational relationship between Australia's largest private rail freight operator and the logistics company, ensuring continuity in their long-term partnership.

The deal will see Pacific National continue its role in supporting Linfox’s national freight operations. Pacific National's extensive network and fleet, which includes over 180 locomotives and nearly 2,000 wagons, play a crucial role in facilitating containerized business across Australia.

From Linfox’s perspective, this continued partnership with Pacific National is seen as a critical component of their operational strategy, which focuses on integrating rail into their freight delivery systems. This method is aligned with their sustainability goals, as rail transport is notably more fuel-efficient than road transport and contributes to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Linfox emphasizes the strategic alignment of combining rail and road transport solutions to meet the logistical demands of Australian manufacturers, retailers, and farmers.
