| Adrian Atkins |

Aurizon is a narrow-moat business operating in efficiently scaled markets. Its rail operations hold significant cost advantages over other forms of bulk commodity transportation, though the industry is highly cyclical. Coal prices have recovered but downward pressure is likely to remain on haulage rates and volumes due to intense competition.
