About Us

Learn about Mainfreight, a global supply chain company. A special company of special people with a real “anything is possible” attitude.



Company Profile

As a global logistics provider, Mainfreight offers managed warehousing and international and domestic freight forwarding.  With team and branches across Australia, Asia, Europe, New Zealand and the Americas Mainfreight continues to expand its global footprint.  Listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange we continue to work towards our 100 year vision.

History

Mainfreight began its operations in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1978, soon growing into New Zealand’s most extensive freight network.  A shift in focus, in 1984, saw the opening  of the first Mainfreight Air & Ocean branch. 

Investment in Australian operations began in 1989 driven by a desire to treat New Zealand and Australia as a single market.  Mainfreight’s presence in Australia continued to expand through both acquisition and branch proliferation across strategic locations.

Mainfreight became global in 1999 with the acquisition of businesses in both Asia and the United States.  Full ownership of our Asian operations was completed in 2007 and today Mainfreight has several branches operating out of China, South East Asia, Japan and Korea. Expansion further continued in America with the purchase of Target Logistics Services in 2007.  Mainfreight USA offers extensive services across the supply chain.

In 2011 Mainfreight acquired the business of Wim Bosman Group providing further opportunities to expand Mainfreight's global supply chain network with branches throughout Europe.

The Mainfreight Culture

“Special people, Special company” embodies Mainfreight and its unique culture.  We have developed a style of doing business, successful not only in New Zealand, but around the world.

Mainfreight is built on a 100-year vision. All decisions are made on the basis that we will be here for another 100 years. This view shapes our approach to recruitment and training of team members, customer and supplier relationships, growth strategies and legal and tax structures.

As a customer of a Mainfreight Group company, you can rely on:

  • An “anything is possible” attitude
  • A commitment to delivering your freight consignments on time and damage-free - and to promptly and honestly resolve issues when they arise
  • Improvement in service through reinvestment in people, facilities, equipment and technologies.

We promote our people from within, and encourage innovative, non-hierarchical and decisive outlooks. Our team regard each other as a family and share mealtimes.  At the same time, we are focused on performance — every branch reports weekly results that are available for all team members to see. Individual responsibility and accountability for quality are reinforced. Key performance indicators important to our customers, like error rates, are linked to team members’ bonuses.  All Mainfreight branches have quality boards and are internally audited every six months.
