Photo of the Month: BFA servicing the rail freight industry
- 21 March 2019
Our March Photo of the Month highlights the incredible size and scope of the projects we work on as part of our daily refuelling schedule. Here we have Bulk Fuel Australia tanker servicing a Chicago Freight Australia GL Class locomotive. With a live weight of 132 tonnes and a 12-cylinder GE engine producing 3300hp, these robust trains require Final Filtered Diesel® to operate efficiently.
Rail freight transporting is a smart and economic choice for Australia. Did you know one freight train from Melbourne to Sydney replaces approximately 110 trucks travelling on the road? Rail freight supports rural and regional Australia by facilitating freight flows to farms, mines and ports, while helping to improve road safety, reduce congestion and creating capacity for our crowded cities. With freight movements expected to increase by 26% over the next decade, a fully integrated multi-modal transport system is needed to progress our growing economy.
Bulk Fuel Australia are here to facilitate rail freight transport around our great land with our bulk fuel and onsite refuelling services. We provide efficiency refuelling for numerous freight and rail companies as we understand the reliability and importance of these services for Australia.
