Mainfreight Albany 5KThe Mainfreight Albany team joined the annual Workforce Team Challenge 5K in Albany, NY. This is the largest running event in the Capital District of New York. The Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club organizes the run and serves as the major fundraiser.
Workforce Team Challenge is dedicated to promoting health and wellness of local corporation employees while also donating all registration fees to charitable organizations. This year’s benefactor organization is the Oakwood Community Center which offers a welcoming and nurturing space for the diverse residents of Troy, NY to become neighbors who care and advocate for each other. Mainfreight is so happy to be a part of helping friends in need as we strive to always think of family first.
Branch manager Bryce Hicks stated, "While running doesn’t always seem like a great idea, the team bonding, effort and collaboration were outstanding. The reward of a personal challenge is unmatched, especially when you can participate with your Mainfreight Mates! We plan to continue this annual tradition as our team grows."
“Special people, Special company” embodies Mainfreight and its unique culture. We have developed a style of doing business, successful not only in New Zealand but around the world.
We promote our people from within and encourage innovative, non-hierarchical, and decisive outlooks. Our team regard each other as a family and share mealtimes.
Mainfreight is built on a 100-year vision. All decisions are made on the basis that we will be here for another 100 years. This view shapes our approach to recruitment and training of team members, customer and supplier relationships, growth strategies, and legal and tax structures.
