Mainfreight Future Leaders Programme
We provide Global Supply Chain Solutions
Mainfreight is in the business of global supply chain logistics. Put simply, we partner with our customers to provide the full spectrum of warehousing, domestic transport and international air and ocean freight operations.
Whether you are sending one pallet down the road, a full truck load to the other side of the country or a full container across the globe; our operations are powered by a global team of passionate people operating in over 239 branches worldwide.
As a team we are focused on setting the bar high with new service initiatives, new branches worldwide and continuous improvement in every area of our supply chain capabilities.
Backed by world class technologies, our global business is built on two unshakable beliefs that we live by on any given day:
-The only way to keep ahead of our competitors is by the superior performance of our people
-The only measure of superior performance is how the customer perceives it
The Mainfreight difference is in our people, our culture and you can measure the difference in our performance and in your results.
