Shared Lunch: Mainfreight–a 100+ year business in the making

Shared Lunch

Logistics and transport multinational Mainfreight is bouncing back after reporting a 42.6% drop in net profit which it puts down to a more normalised trading environment after a post pandemic boom.

In our conversation with Managing Director Don Braid we delve beyond the numbers, including his 26 year tenure, how the company has kept growing, and further expansion overseas.  Plus its dividend payout and how it's aiming to be a 100+ year company.
