By Tuesday 27 September 2016June 2nd, 2017No Comments

One of just two finalists in this year’s distribution and logistics category at the Wine Industry Impact Awards, Mainfrieght is being recognised for its reach and services, facilitating peace of mind with wine clients the world over.

Mainfreight last year shipped more than 15 million litres of wine in its Steel ISO tank fleet, while over 200 tonnes of bottled wine was transported via its air freight systems. But it’s the flexibility of Mainfreight to deliver, no matter how big or small your requirements, that makes them a cut above the rest.

“We carried over 200 tonnes of bottled wine to the world last year, but we still do shipments of one or two cases for wineries in Australia looking to break into certain markets,” says Dave Coughlin, South Australian branch manager of Mainfreight Air and Ocean.


Beginning in 1979 in Auckland with one truck snapped up for $2,700, Mainfreight is now one of the world’s leading wine freight businesses. “We provide a world class end-to-end supply chain service,” says Dave. “We partner with our customers to provide the full spectrum of warehousing, domestic transport and international air and ocean freight.”

With 243 branches around the globe, Mainfreight strives to provide consistent, transparent honesty in its services. “Our customers can rely on real-time data accuracy and visibility from anywhere in the world,” Dave says.

With Mainfreight you can rest assured your wines will get to where they need to be – in the state you intended. The storage warehouses maintain optimum temperatures for your wine, while humidity monitoring technology makes it as close as possible to cellar conditions.


Mainfreight offers a full range of logistical solutions including re-labelling to palletisation and vintage bundling to label translations.

“We believe we have a true partnership with our clients,” says Dave. “One that is not purely based on spend, but on innovation through both competitiveness and our energetic and enthusiastic results-driven team.”
