What is the Mainfreight Development Program?

The Mainfreight Development Program is designed to help shape professionals and build life skills that enable MDP team members to take on any role in this business, anywhere in the world. We are focused on developing leadership competencies because at Mainfreight leadership is a mindset not a title. Our culture embraces indivduals seeking hands on experience in our vast industry. No college degree? No problem! At Mainfreight education is optional, but learning is compulsory. _DSC3879-1-1.jpg

The Mainfreight Development Program is the ideal combination of ‘doing’ and ‘learning’. We are involved in air & ocean logistics, transporting, warehousing and global supply chain solutions for our partners and customers.

A team will always be by your side and our MDP courses will set you up professionally for endless roles in sales, accounting, management, IT, training development and much more! The development program is available in all five of our regions around the world - New Zealand, Austrailia, Americas, Asia and Europe.
