FREIGHT rail giant Pacific National Australia’s has issued a ‘thank you’ to the New South Wales government for providing additional resources for COVID testing of essential freight workers at Taree.

“Pacific National in particular thanks the offices of the NSW Deputy Premier, NSW Minister for Regional Transport & Roads, and Transport for NSW Freight division,” said company managing director and CEO Paul Scurrah.
Pacific National has 62 freight train drivers in constant rotation between Taree (26 drivers) and the Brisbane Freight Terminal (36 drivers) – each week operating more than 30 services; transporting 4,500 containers (equivalent to approximately 1,800 truck trips) and 18,000 tonnes of steel. And that is just Pacific National.
