Aurizon inks another coal haulage deal

Rail firm Aurizon has signed a new long term contract to haul 5.5 million tonnes of coal a year from Ensham's mine in central Queensland to the Port of Gladstone.

 

The new deal extends an existing arrangement which is set to expire in 2015, and will see Aurizon manage rail haulage for the company until 2024.

 

Aurizon executive vice president Paul Scurrah said both companies had decided to strike the deal before the end of the first contract in order to generate more value for each party.

 

“Under this new arrangement, Aurizon can better meet Ensham's demand for services to align with its mine production in both the short and long term,” he said.
