“Special people, Special company” embodies Mainfreight and its unique culture. Our company is built on three pillars! Looking at our three pillars will give you a better understanding of who we are and how we work together.
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. At the same time, we are focused on performance — every branch reports weekly results that are available for all team members to see. Individual responsibility and accountability for quality are reinforced.
