Our Vision and Values

ARTC Vision

Our vision is to make rail the mode of choice in the national logistics chain.

We’ve invested billions of dollars to build, extend and upgrade our network to improve safety, reliability and transit times, and capacity for the interstate freight and passenger markets and Hunter Valley coal chain.

Our focus is to bring more freight onto rail by putting you, our customers, at the centre of everything we do.

We’re committed to delivering:

  • growth in rail freight volumes on our network and increased rail market share;
  • a stronger national supply chain;
  • a reputation as an industry leader and an innovative rail based infrastructure owner and operator;
  • greater Shareholder returns.

We also continue to focus on safety through effective safety leadership, employee engagement and accountability.

ARTC Values

Our values and behaviours are the foundation of our business. Our culture supports diverse and broad thinking, customer focused decision making, accountability and responsibility.

Our values are:

No Harm

In our world, safety is everything. We care about our people, environment and communities. It doesn’t matter how big or small, doing things safely means doing things right.

Future Thinking

Future thinking is in our DNA. It’s how we innovate, change the game and break through challenges and barriers. We’re leaders who think differently; curious and skilful, we challenge the status quo.

Active Engagement

We care about what matters and we’re committed to the success of our customers, stakeholders and employees. We ask questions, listen and respond to needs. We’re always on the front foot and actively engaged.


We deliver results. We’re driven by results because they lead to progress. Determined to make rail the mode of choice for freight, we work together to achieve personal, organisational and industry-wide results.
