Speed Interviews Mainfreight (ICE)
As a global logistics provider, Mainfreight offers managed warehousing and international and domestic freight forwarding. With team and branches across Australia, China, Europe, New Zealand and the Americas Mainfreight continues to expand its global footprint. Listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange we continue to work towards our 100 year vision.
The moment you become a member of the Mainfreight family, your career hits overdrive – if you want it to. Anything is possible here because you get to work alongside the best people and make real-life decisions.
We promote from within our own European or even global pool of talent and give you the freedom to go as far as you dare. If that freedom means travelling and living in other parts of the world, if a new area of the business gets you excited or you’re fired up about running this global business one day, we say “go for it”!
Our commitment to creating a 100 year company is not about reaching an end point in 100 years time. It’s about longevity; growing a business that’s strong, iconic and enduring.
We are focused on growing in both capability and scale within our existing markets. We’re also rapidly expanding our network into new territories. As the world’s new trading nations emerge, Mainfreight will be there to meet the demand for global logistics.
To achieve our goals and aspirations we know that we need to recruit and develop the next generation of savvy, fresh-thinking and globally-aware leaders. We never stop looking for people who can help lead our business into the future.
Leadership at Mainfreight is a way of doing things. It’s a mindset rather than a role and it’s accessible to everybody who’s willing to step-up. We are a team that’s fiercely ambitious, proud and compassionate. We look for that in our people and in return, offer them the world. At Mainfreight how far, how soon and where, is up to you.
What we look for
Every decision we make at Mainfreight today, we do so while looking at the next 100 years. We look for people who understand the long term benefits of leanring from the ground up and gaining a broad base of experience. We also look for people who:

- Are passionate about starting a career in the supply chain industry

What we offer

We believe in developing our team members of the future today, because we know that they will be driving our business tomorrow and for the next 100 years. We look for people that see the long term impact they will have on our business. If you’re ready for the challenge of a lifetime, read on!
