Mainfreight has humble beginnings having started off very small with a second-hand J1 Bedford truck named Moody Blue, $2,700 in the capital and a small office in Mount Wellington, Auckland. We still have the truck today which sits at our main Auckland Branch to remind us of our beginning. From here, we have grown to be not only one of New Zealand’s most influential companies but also a hugely successful global organization.

Mainfreight is not just a 'trucking company'. We are a Global Supply Chain and Logistics solution providers with 239 branches throughout the world spanning New Zealand, Australia, Asia, USA, Europe, and South America. We also enjoy co-operative arrangements with partners in just about every other country in the world. We may be growing in size but we pride ourselves on being a close-knit family.

They understand the journey you're on and are more than happy to help you plan and execute your Mainfreight career path.

Who are we looking for?

At Mainfreight, we value individuality, personality, attitude, and guts. While your qualifications are important, we’re just as interested in your sports and hobbies, your part-time jobs and what makes you, you.

We believe these are the qualities that will help us take Mainfreight to the world! If you're a person who's hungry to learn, grow, be challenged and travel, you've come to the right place.

In return for your hard work and dedication, you will be rewarded with the kind of security and on-going career opportunities that only a world-class company like Mainfreight can offer.
