Linfox Logistics moves to expand intermodal capability

Linfox has entered into a consortium with Pacific National to purchase the containerised freight haulage and end-to-end freight forwarding capability on Queensland’s northern freight line.

Forming a consortium with Pacific National is the first step towards purchasing these strategically significant assets which are currently owned by Aurizon Queensland Intermodal.

If successful, this acquisition will enable Linfox to improve the scale and scope of the freight forwarding services it offers to national and large Australian freight forwarding customers, including those delivering freight to
Northern Queensland.

As an Australian-owned company we are proud to be investing within Australia and in the team that runs this successful business in Queensland.

Our consortium partner, Pacific National will be working with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to gain clearance for the acquisition of other assets of Aurizon Queensland Intermodal. Linfox will support this
process.

If the Pacific National transaction is cleared by the ACCC, Linfox will acquire and use the rail haulage capacity supplied by Pacific National to supply intra-state and interstate freight forwarding services to customers in
Queensland and Northern Queensland.

The acquisition will also include pick-up and delivery and warehousing services, but exclude standard gauge haulage to and from Acacia Ridge and hook and pull contracts for train services.
