History

Pacific National, now one of Australia’s largest private rail operations, was formed back in 2002 with Toll’s acquisition of the National Rail Corporation and FreightCorp. Since then, the business has expanded exponentially across Australia.

Asciano purchased Pacific National, along with Patrick container ports in 2007, with the Asciano group listed on the Australian Securities Exchange on 6 June of the same year.

19 August 2016 saw Pacific National break away from the Asciano group of companies as part of the Asciano takeover by Brookfield and Qube.

We are in a new era for our business, our future as the new, standalone, Pacific National is only just beginning.

Innovation

For us innovation isn’t about seeking something new. It’s about analysing what’s working in your business and planning to make it better. That way, we don’t spend time fixing problems, we spend time thinking about the whole picture and how we’re going to build changes for the long term. 

Innovations in rail freight allow us to move cargo predictably and with minimal possible cost

Safety

Safety isn’t a set of guiding principles, it’s in everything we do. We manage our performance in everyday tasks and in our board’s decisions. And it’s about more than meeting the law, it’s about providing careful, sustainable practices to our customers and stakeholders in all our services.

We’re committed to getting our people home safely everyday

Sustainability

Our approach to environmental management is to identify our material risks, and allocate appropriate resources to ensure that these risks are appropriately managed, while ensuring we are compliant with all regulatory requirements. We also continue to invest in and modernise our fleet and equipment and are committed to improving our operational efficiency, which delivers both environmental benefits and cost savings. 

We are focused on indentifying and introducing a range of energy saving initiatives
