Special People - Special Company!

It has taken people from all walks of life, with a common vision and focused attitude, to make Mainfreight one of New Zealand’s finest success stories. From our humble beginnings in the 1970’s with just one second-hand Bedford truck, we are now a global yet united team of over 8,000 strong. Will you be next to join us?

You’ve always wanted to captain your own ship; you’ve got the passion and the drive to grow your own business… well, the time has come!

An opportunity has opened to join the Daily Freight family in Christchurch as an owner driver. You will need to own your own Class 2 curtain sider truck approved by Daily Freight, the heart of an entrepreneur and a genuine love of dealing with people. A can do, friendly attitude and a love for customers is essential.

Of course, you’ve also got:
• Current Class 2 Drivers Licence
• Goods and Service Licence
• Dangerous Goods Licence
• Fork Hoist Licence

Speak to any Daily Freight Owner Driver, they’ll tell you it’s a win/win. You may be your own boss, but you’re backed by all the support and resources of a successful global company, a company who believe that hard work deserves reward.

To be considered for this position you will need to pass a Pre-employment Background Check and Drug and Alcohol Test.

Start your own business journey and join us on ours, as we work towards our 100-year vision.
