Optimisation for Aurizon rail freight

US-based GE Transport and Australia’s SolveIT Software have announced a joint project to deliver an integrated rail network planning and optimisation solution for Aurizon, Australia’s largest rail freight company. Aurizon, previously known as QR National, has operations across five states carrying coal, ore, other minerals, agricultural products and general freight. These include the 2,760 km Central Queensland Coal Network that links mines to coal ports at Bowen, Mackay and Gladstone.

The CQCN is currently capacity-constrained, with more miners requesting service than can be accommodated. Export growth over the last decade has also made the system much more complicated, with more producers accessing the network from new mines and in some cases sharing coal handling infrastructure. Managing access has become a difficult, tightly regulated supply chain management challenge.
