​Around 270,000 twenty-foot equivalent containers transit the Queensland Rail freight system and terminal each year.

This is despite the fact that national economic conditions are contributing to a slowing of demand. Goods for the Brisbane metropolitan market are transshipped to trucks, while others are shifted to narrow gauge trains for transport on our network throughout Queensland.

The Brisbane Multi-User Terminal (BMUT) at Acacia Ridge supports the intermodal transport of containers destined for the wholesale and retail market in the south-e​ast Queensland area.
