Meet our Intern Quincy 

During my internship within the Marketing & Communication team I learned a lot. I not only became more enthusiastic about Marketing, but also about Mainfreight and its 100-year vision. From day one I became part of the Mainfreight family and was seen as a real team member. Time flies, but in this case that is not a bad thing: after my studies I would like to come back for the Traineeship. I am sure that at Mainfreight I can grow into who I want to be!
