Sustainability is at the heart of KiwiRail's business.

Our sustainability story

KiwiRail’s customers discuss the value of rail

We’ve been out in the field with a number of our key customers to find out what’s really important to them. This is an important step in our journey towards greater customer-centricity.
There’s a lot of great mahi happening across the motu and we’re humbled to work alongside our customers’ organisations helping them to meet their business goals.

Our people

KiwiRail is one of New Zealand’s largest employers, with proud staff operating in more than 50 towns and cities across the country.
History means a lot to our people – many are the third or fourth generation in their family to work in rail – but it is the promise of rail’s future that excites our 4,500 people.
