RAIL giant Aurizon will offload its general freight business, including a Brisbane terminal, after announcing a $188 million loss for the past year.

Revenue had flat-lined at $3.45 billion for the year after a shutdown of the Queensland coal network in Queensland following Cyclone Debbie.
Aurizon chief executive Andrew Harding said the Queensland intermodal business would be purchased by a consortium of Linfox and Pacific National for about $220 million after racking up losses over several years.
