The Three Pillars of Mainfreight

Mainfreight owes its success to various factors. Our success rests on three pillars: Culture, Family and Philosophy. If you are interested in our driver C/CE vacancies, we would like to tell you more about these pillars. After all, The Three Pillars of Mainfreight say a lot about our organization.

Our Culture

Mainfreight's success is largely due to the culture within our organization. Within our organization we prefer not to make big promises that we cannot keep. We make promises that we know we can keep and then perform even better. Training is optional at Mainfreight, but we are all eager to learn. We empower individuals to make decisions. Our organization is not pyramid-shaped and we don't use the S-word (Staff). We pay close attention to our people and resources and prefer to train people within our own organization. We value integrity and in our actions we also consider what effect it will have on another person.

Our family

At Mainfreight we are like one big family. We eat together and we prefer to use meals to talk to each other. We listen carefully to each other and find it important that everyone in the organization benefits from our success. Problems are discussed openly and resolved. We find it very important to have respect for each other. You can expect to be treated respectfully here, and you are also expected to be respectful of others.

Our philosophy

Our philosophy also contributes to our success. At Mainfreight, we have a 100-year vision. With every decision, we assume that we will exist for another 100 years. We focus on the long term and look 100 years ahead every day. We care deeply about each other, our customers and the environment. Because of our long-term vision, we prefer to train our own staff as well. We like to offer you the opportunity to grow, both professionally and personally.

At Mainfreight we are profit-driven and do not only strive for the highest possible turnover. According to us, you achieve profit by working hard and not by talking. In our view, a sustainable organization is built by many good people and not by a select few.

Frequently Asked Questions

What we do?

As a part of Mainfreight, you can expect to be helping some of the world’s largest brands become more competitive and efficient. Being a strategic supply chain partner means Mainfreight helps customers get their products from the manufacturer to the end-user in the smartest, most cost-effective way.

Our business can be broken down into three core areas:

Who we are?

It all started in 1978 with a couple of free-thinking entrepreneurs who didn’t care much for rules. As a start-up they challenged the establishment and always took care of their own. Years later, that rebellion and people-first philosophy is still deeply ingrained in our DNA. In 2011 Mainfreight acquired the business of Wim Bosman Group providing further opportunities to expand Mainfreight's international global network with branches throughout Europe.

We have a 100-year vision, that means every person and every decision we make today will leave an imprint on this company now and for 100 years to come. This long-term vision guides us as a business and determines both our decisions and actions every day.

As we extend our operations across the major trading nations of the world, we continue to stand out for the right reasons. It is our uncompromising quality, agility and unique culture which sets us apart.

What is the working culture like?

We are a very flat structured organisation. We have open plan offices and management sit in amongst the team. We do not use the “s” word (staff) and refer to everyone as Team – everyone has a part to play in moving Mainfreight forward and meeting our targets and goals.

We believe in working hard but we also have fun and a laugh while we do it. Our team is empowered to make decisions and have a say in how we do things.

How will my career progress?

Our philosophy is to recruit and ‘grow’ our own people, rather than hire people from other businesses. That is why we invest in and manage the long-term growth and development of our people, right from the start.

Once you have learnt the fundamentals of Mainfreight on the operations floor, you will move into other areas of the business where you will get the right mix of autonomy and support. We believe that smart people can learn the specifics of any role so our focus is on helping you develop personal and professional skills that will allow you take on any role in the business. 

We are an ever-changing business and we are constantly reviewing new ways to help our team develop the world-class skills that will lead our business into the future.

What Training and Development do you offer?

We understand that our biggest asset is our people and that our growth as a business is only limited by our ability to grow our own people. Our training and development strategy reflects this with structured induction, training and development. The Mainfreight difference is that we focus on helping you develop the professional and personal strategies, tools and life skills to step into any role in the business, anywhere in the world.

Our ongoing team development programs around the world currently includes:
  • A full induction program
  • Learning the business from the operations floor-up
  • Structured leadership programmes
  • Personal development courses
