    About Aurizon Holdings Ltd

    Aurizon Holdings Ltd (ASX: AZJ) is Australia's largest rail freight operator hauling bulk commodities, largely coal, as well as iron ore and agricultural products.

    The company owns one of the world's largest coal rail networks, linking around 50 mines to three major ports in Queensland. The rail network, composed of 2,670 kilometres of lines under a 99-year lease from the Queensland government, contributes the majority of Aurizon's earnings.

    Bulk export coal haulage from mine to port is also a significant contributor. Its freight and iron ore segment accounts for a far smaller portion of the company's revenue.
