Mainfreight has humble beginnings having started off very small in 1978 with a second-hand J1 Bedford truck named Moody Blue, $2,700 in capital and a small office in Mount Wellington, Auckland.
In 1963 Wim Bosman started also with one truck and limited capital and now we have grown into a full supply chain logistics provider including E-commerce. In 50 years’ time we have become a leading logistics service provider with a strong foothold in both Western and Eastern Europe.
We still have both trucks today which sits at our Main Auckland Branch and Main 's-Heerenberg branch to remind us of our beginning. From here, we have grown to be a hugely successful global organisation. With more than 5600 team members globally!
Mainfreight is built on a 100-year vision. All decisions are made on the basis that we will be here for another 100 years.
