The transition of Mainfreight's courier requirements to New Zealand Couriers effective from 1 November 2004. This includes all internal courier requirements and those of Mainfreight's logistics customers.

The forming of a total solution to the marketplace, combining the complementary services of Freightways’ express package brands of New Zealand Couriers, Post Haste Couriers, Castle Parcels and SUB60 with the services of Mainfreight’s Supply Chain brands.

The development and introduction of compatible technology solutions for customers of each company.

The opportunity to explore and develop efficiencies within each of the company's respective domestic networks.
