Fast Track to Sales

Are you keen to develop your sales skills as part of a team in a world-class supply chain provider? Do you have what it takes to be a leader in the fast paced and dynamic supply chain sales industry?

If yes, then our Mainfreight Fast Track to Sales Program may be right for you. This is a full time, entry-level sales development role leading into an outside sales position. No sales experience necessary!

You will spend the first six months to a year learning our sophisticated global logistics operations from the ground up. No part of the operations will be below or above you; it’s all about understanding the big picture. The role will be a combination of customer service and hands on operations in order to learn and understand internal and external processes that will give you all the knowledge you need for when you hit the road running.

From here, we will get you into an outside sales role as soon as you are ready – with Mainfreight we won’t leave you to sink, we want to set you up with the tools for sales success!

Our story to date has been built upon strong philosophical ideals; hire people more intelligent than you; create an environment for them to succeed; allow them to assume as much responsibility as they desire; give them the freedom to act decisively in building their future and ours!
