Domestic Transport

Through our network of strategically located branches across the country, we can manage any express freight requirements. Using a large fleet of trucks and trailers, we will move your pallets, crates and any challenging freight – quickly, professionally and with full visibility.

Our local branch network means we can understand our customers’ businesses better, make fast decisions and recognise opportunities which simply aren’t apparent when doing business from a distance.

Nationwide Network

Your products are controlled through our comprehensive branch network allowing you to move your freight through one provider to any postcode in Australia.

Regional Specialists

Direct line-haul into our regional branch network means your freight is not cross docked via capital city hubs, minimising the risk of damage and reducing lead times.

Decentralised Customer Service

Our decentralised customer service teams are in each branch, making decisions as close to customers as possible. This provides timely, accurate information on shipment status, reducing the time your team may spend on the phone chasing down responses.

Full Truck Load
When you have a full truck load of products or equipment to move, there are some significant efficiencies that can improve transit times, reduce freight handling and enhance quality. Our nationwide FTL direct delivery service means that the truck that picks up your freight will directly deliver it to the customer. This means no double handling of your product, reducing the risk of damage.

Hazardous Goods
Specialist knowledge, understanding and detailed documentation is mandatory when transporting and handling dangerous goods and hazardous substances.

While many carriers are exiting the hazardous goods market, we are intensifying our commitment to serving this complex business segment. Over many years we have uniquely combined our research, investment, experience and processes to create a dangerous goods transport solution that pro-actively addresses changing compliance laws.

How we support your business

Purpose Built Facilities
Raised docks allow loaders to have better line of sight when loading your product. The latest materials handling equipment ensures safe and efficient freight movement. Open plan offices provide clear communication and operation visibility. It is all about minimising risk and making your life easier when we are moving your valuable goods.
Pallet Control
Our dedicated branch-based pallet controllers discuss and agree on pallet management arrangements prior to despatching freight, so that a robust process is set up to save time and money.
Customer Service
Our decentralised customer service teams are in each branch, making decisions as close to customers as possible. This provides timely, accurate information on shipment status, reducing the time your team may spend on the phone chasing down responses.
Product Return Services
Third party pick-ups or returns can often cause unnecessary inconvenience due to poorly presented freight or a lack of consignment paperwork. MoveIt is a service offered to control the process from pick up through to delivery. For an additional charge, the Mainfreight team will generate the consignment note and freight label, with the driver tasked with labelling the freight at pick up. MoveIt ensures the pick-up and delivery instructions are met when you or your team aren’t in control of the despatch process.
Timeslot Management
We understand that strong working relationships and delivery performance with wholesale and retail chain distribution centres (DC’s) are critical success factors. For this reason we provide daily delivery services to FMCG (e.g. Officeworks, Coles, Woolworths, Bunnings) DC’s across the country.

Each of our decentralised branch operations have a dedicated timeslot coordinator on site to build rapport with local DC team members. This ensures strict delivery deadlines are met giving you peace of mind around important retail deliveries and making sure your valuable brand image with major customers is maintained.

Domestic Transport Technology

Through Mainchain we are able to provide global visibility to our customers of their entire supply chain across all regions and divisions within our business.

Owner Drivers

Our dedicated Mainfreight Owner Drivers care for their vehicles, presentation and customers. With their income linked directly to the service they provide (not the hours they work) your teams will value the difference in attitude and customer service they provide. All owner driver vehicles are fitted with GPS tracking to ensure that the fleet can be managed, monitored and planned effectively.
