Our journey so far

It all started in 1978 with a couple of free-thinking entrepreneurs who didn't much care for rules.  As a start-up they challenged the establishment and always took care of their own. Thirty seven years on and that rebellion and people-first philosophy are still deeply ingrained in our DNA.

Today, Mainfreight has matured into a sophisticated international logistics and supply chain business. With our fast-growing team of 6,000-plus, we compete with the some of the world's biggest names in transport and logistics. 

We got to being a $2 billion-plus global business by having a real  hunger for success, sharing our goals with everybody on the team and promoting our own. To keep ahead of the pack, we look for people who have the same fire in the belly as our founders.

It’s an exciting ride. But not for the fainthearted.
