Get­ting from pad­docks to city plates by rail

STATE par­lia­ment is in­ves­ti­gat­ing ef­fec­tive rail trans­port of agri­cul­ture and live­stock.

GrainX Aus­tralia CEO Chris Hood be­lieves “farm­ers must re­turn to the days where they have some con­trol over the sup­ply chain be­yond the farm gate.”

Mr Hood wants commercial com­pa­nies to op­er­ate and own rail-based sup­ply chains, in par­al­lel with Aur­i­zon. Bring it on! Aur­i­zon and coal should not have the mo­nop­oly on rail freight.

Fol­low the de­bate at www.par­lia­ment.qld.gov .au/work-of-com­mit­tees/ com­mit­tees/THLGC and let us know your thoughts.

The com­mit­tee will re­port to state par­lia­ment on Tues­day, June 10.
