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.

We’re focused on getting more freight on rail, so 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 have an uncompromising commitment to people’s wellbeing, so doing things right means doing things safely. We must do everything we can to protect ourselves, each other and the communities in which we live, work and visit.

Future Thinking

We encourage everyone to find better ways of working by simplifying systems and processes, learning from what we’ve done previously, challenging the norm and sharing ideas. While we work hard to deliver today, we’re also encouraged to think and plan for tomorrow.

Active Engagement

When we’re curious, ask questions, listen to one another and think positively, great things happen. We’re committed to the success of our customers, stakeholders and employees, and are always on the front foot to provide a great workplace and a strong business.


We’re driven by results because they lead to progress. Determined to improve Australia’s productivity by making rail the mode of choice in the national logistics chain, we work together to achieve our personal and shared goals to deliver great outcomes for all.
