What's important to us...


The right people come from a range of backgrounds, but all of these people identify Mainfreight as a place to build their careers. For many, it is after completing tertiary study, but for others it is the decision to start work at Mainfreight as an alternative to study.


Mainfreight has always attempted to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. Our sustainability initiatives have often resulted in reduced costs; so the bottom line and the environment are both winners.


We believe in taking responsibility. Mainfreight is the founding sponsor of Duffy Books in Homes since its inception in New Zealand over 20 years ago. Beginning in 2008, Mainfreight has helped establish "Books in Homes USA" to supply over 170,000 free books to children living in "bookless homes". We continue to strive to have a positive impact on our local communities.
