KiwiRail is one of New Zealand’s largest landowners and a significant landlord with 18,000ha of land, more than 900 buildings and a property portfolio worth $3.6 billion.

We take our role seriously as guardians of the rail corridor for future generations, securing and protecting active rail land while disposing of assets that are no longer needed to fund future rail investments.

Our team of property experts manage more than 8000 contracts so New Zealanders can occupy and use rail land. Our customers include freight partners, commercial business, councils and residential neighbours.

Kaitiakitanga is important to us

We have 150 years worth of assets to protect for all New Zealanders, so improving our portfolio to ensure fit for purpose buildings that are safe, environmentally sound and developed for the future is key to our success.

KiwiRail is at the heart of New Zealand’s strategic freight flows and we are developing a number of intermodal freight hubs across the country to ensure goods get to market in the most efficient way possible.

As a landlord, a landowner and a protector of land for future generations, kaitiakitanga is important to us. We aim to be a good neighbour and have a number of ways that we can help those who live alongside us or need other assistance.
