Brisbane Multimodal Terminal

The Brisbane Multimodal Terminal (BMT) is the interface between rail, road and the container terminals at the port. The facility operates during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday: 7.00am to 6.00pm
  • Saturday: 10:00am to 2.00pm
  • Sunday: Closed

The integration of these transport modes, a dual-gauge rail link, and the location of the BMT behind the container terminals, enables the movement of large volumes of interstate and intrastate cargo into and out of the port by rail.

The BMT can also offer interim depot solutions for import and export containerised cargo (i.e. providing short-term storage for import containers and pre-receiving containers for export).

Aurizon and Pacific National run services to the BMT, connecting the port to major and regional Queensland centres as well as the eastern capital cities of Sydney and Melbourne.

The BMT has the ability to monitor freight containers as they move through the port.  An electronic interface with rail, shipping, and container-terminal operators provides rapid communication links, contributing to a cost-effective and highly efficient transport service.  It is also a licensed Customs bond facility.

The BMT is licensed as a major hazard facility under the Queensland Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act & Regulation (2011).  For more information about this license, please click here
