Mainfreight of New Zealand/Australia continues to invest in Europe

Thanks to the growth of Mainfreight in Europe, the company is further investing in an increase of capacity of both warehousing and distribution facilities. The new warehouse is located in the Netherlands.
Completion of this multi customer warehouse is expected in May 2017. The aim is to achieve the BREEAM-NL Very Good completion certificate. The warehouse will be 26,000m2. By realizing the new warehouse, Mainfreight is expanding its European footprint to more than 320,000m2 of warehousing space.
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 United State,s Mainfreight continues to expand its global footprint.
Mainfreight began its operations in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1978, soon growing into New Zealand’s most extensive freight network. A shift in focus, in 1984, saw the opening of the first Mainfreight International branch. Investment in Australian operations began in 1989 driven by a desire to treat New Zealand and Australia as a single market. Mainfreight’s presence in Australia continued to expand through both acquisition and branch proliferation across strategic locations.
Mainfreight became global in 1999 with the acquisition of businesses in both Asia and the United States. Full ownership of its Asian operations was completed in 2007 and today Mainfreight has several branches operating out of China, and expansion further continued in America with the purchase of Target Logistics Services in 2007. Mainfreight USA offers extensive services across the supply chain.
In 2011 Mainfreight acquired the business of Wim Bosman Group providing further opportunities to expand Mainfreight’s international global network with branches throughout Europe.
