Ready for the Mainfreight Future Leaders Program?

Graduate Careers

Are you keen to develop your knowledge and leadership skills as part of a team in a world class supply chain provider? Do you have what it takes to be a leader in the fast paced and dynamic supply chain industry?

If yes, then our Mainfreight Future Leaders Program may be right for you.

With the opportunity to start your career in our Air & Ocean team (Import/Export), Logistics (3PL warehousing) or Domestic Transport, the Mainfreight world is your oyster.

Starting on the warehouse floor, you'll learn our sophisticated global logistics operations from the ground up.

They understand the journey you're on and are more than happy to help you plan and execute your Mainfreight career path.

As a potential leader here, you can expect to be supported by our unique brand of leadership development; a personalized program of professional and personal development based around your unique mix of skills and talents.

From here, the opportunities are endless, you can develop your management skills, run your own warehouse or head out on the road to sell our services.
