Northern Territory Chief Minister Clare Martin says 85 per cent of freight carried between Adelaide and Darwin is now transported by rail.
Ms Martin spoke at a freight conference in Alice Springs today.
She says the rail line between Alice Springs and Darwin started operating less than two years ago, but has been very successful.
Ms Martin is encouraging clothing and textiles imports to Darwin from Asia, but says the challenge is to convince more businesses in Asia to change the way they transport goods.
"Nevertheless we're very confident these business opportunities will eventually be realised," Ms Martin said.
Representatives from importers and exporters and global logistics operators and international shipping lines are at the conference.
A session was held in Katherine yesterday and the delegates are travelling through to Adelaide on the Ghan.
