Why Rail?

The benefits of rail and road over solely road are many, for the community, the industry, and the cattle themselves.

Cattle Train is Queensland’s new and dedicated long and short haul rail service specialising in the transport of live cattle. 

We understand you want your cattle reliably delivered in as short a time frame possible, in the best condition possible to maximise your returns. You also need good, clear communication at all stages along the way. We are here for you, with real people at the end of the phone to help you with a regular, reliable and responsive cattle transport service.

Regular services run between key load points and specific destinations as shown below. 

Responsive services can be arranged on demand. Talk to our Livestock Coordinator to find out more.



"For Oakey Beef Exports, the strategic location of the Morven Freight Hub enables cattle to travel within transport guidelines in a day, providing an efficient flow of cattle through the supply chain,”

Why Rail

Rail is still the most efficient mode of transport for cattle. Cattle travel much better on rail due to a relatively even pace, minimal stopping and starting and single decks as opposed to double decks. This means they arrive at the destination in the best condition possible.

We work with road transport companies to compliment their fleet with great long haul solutions allowing them to focus on their customers with first and last mile delivery.
