Transport infrastructure giant Asciano has signed a long-term contract with Toll Holdings for the haulage of intermodal rail freight.

The contract, worth up to $1 billion over the next five years, will see Asciano supply rail haulage services for the interstate movement of containers and cars through its Pacific National Intermodal division.

Pacific National has also granted Toll a lease over land within its Perth Freight Terminal precinct, where it intends to develop a freight forwarding facility immediately adjacent to the rail terminal (subject to ACCC approval).

"The benefits of co-locating rail and freight forwarding facilities are becoming increasingly important and may become a model for the development of Intermodal freight in Australia," says Asciano managing director Mark Rowsthorn.
