CFCL Australia (CFCLA) has serviced the Australian rail market since 1998 and is the premier provider of tailored locomotive and rolling stock leasing solutions to rail operators across the country.
The Sydney-based company currently manages a fleet of more than 80 locomotives and 1800 wagons built to carry various commodities including iron ore, coal, grain and other minerals – making it popular with the resources industry. Major clients include Qube Logistics and Rio Tinto.
CFCLA is currently involved in the new Roy Hill iron ore mine, supplying John Holland with rolling stock for the construction of the railway line in the Pilbara. Once built, the new railway will transport processed iron ore from the site to a dedicated port stockyard facility south of Port Hedland.
The company has one of the newest locomotive fleets operating on the defined interstate rail network. As well as being one of the country’s biggest private owners of quality accredited rail assets, CFCLA prides itself on delivering a high standard of customer service: providing clients with a 24-hour help desk, GPS monitoring, nationwide maintenance coverage and a strong commitment to safety management.
CFCLA is able to operate its fleet under flexible lease terms, catering to its clients’ needs. It can provide rolling stock at short notice to respond to unforeseen opportunities and events – minimising downtime and saving money. CFCLA recognises that operating conditions and rail gauges in Australia vary and it is able to tune its fleet to specific configurations. Its wagons and locomotives are gauge convertible for narrow, broad and standard operations. A variety of rolling stock is available for different axle load limits up to 35t, which caters for almost every rail operating environment across the nation.
Efficient and fast deployment of assets is a key element to CFCLA’s success over the years. The team is willing to go the extra mile for clients and has the ability to dispatch rolling stock in a short period of time.
CFCLA’s fleet can operate in many conditions throughout mainland Australia, including remote areas. Its close relationship with its affiliate company CF Rail Services ensures the fleet can be serviced and maintained in facilities around the country.
