Glencore moves some transport operations to trucks on Queensland roads

Transport from trains to trucks

It has been confirmed by Glencore that there will be more freight on the road in north Queensland after rail company Aurizon lost its contract.

Aurizon's contract loss in January meant extensive job cuts across several north Queensland towns, with Hughenden the worst affected, losing 29 jobs in the area.

Pacific National, which was already responsible for taking Glencore's mineral concentrate via rail, has taken over the Aurizon contract.

Aurizon had been responsible to transporting other products for Glencore.

Glencore's Australian copper assets chief executive Mike Westerman confirmed the freight Aurizon had been transporting would now be moved using trucks.
