ABC reported that the Adani group has launched its own rail business to haul coal to its Queensland port, while avoiding any public mention of the parent company or the controversial Carmichael mine. Bowen Rail Company last month announced it was launching a haulage business to service Abbot Point export terminal and searches show the directors of Bowen Rail Company Pty Ltd are all senior Adani staff in Australia. They are Adani Australia chief executive Jeyakumar Janakaraj, Adani Enterprises infrastructure chief executive Trista Brohier, Adani Australia executive director Samir Vora and Adani Abbot Point Operations finance manager Damien Dederer.

Bowen Rail Company last month announced it was launching a haulage business to service Abbot Point export terminal. Head of project delivery, David Wassell, said the company had bought its own state-of-the-art locomotives and rollingstock and would recruit about 50 workers. The first four locomotives are due to arrive in 2021. Neither the media release nor the company website mention Adani or the Carmichael mine.

The ABC last year revealed Adani was snubbed by rail haulage operator, Genesee & Wyoming Australia. The other two rail operators with capacity to haul Adani's 10 million tonnes of coal a year Aurizon and Pacific National have come under activist and shareholder pressure to follow suit.
