About Toll Group New Zealand

  • Transport & Logistics

Toll was founded in 1888 by Albert Toll where he began hauling coal by horse and cart. Since then Toll has been through many changes however the most significant change was in 2015 when Toll embarked on a new chapter in its 129-year history and became part of the Japan Post family.

An Australian-based integrated logistics company with a focus on the Asia Pacific region, Toll is committed to delivering excellent services for our customers across our global network, supported by Japan Post. Together, we are building one of the top logistics companies in the world.

We currently employ approximately 40,000 people over a network of 1,200 sites in more than 50 countries.
Our customers are some of Australia’s largest and well-known brands however as equally important, we support the thousands of small businesses we all depend on to keep this nation humming.

Work Hours
  • The best thing is that I get exposed to different divisions of the business and have a good overview.
  • Variety of work and the opportunity to build a strong foundation in the logistic industry by experiencing several disciplines (Operations, Commercial, Financial etc.) of the Business Units
  • Travelling for work, getting supports from all level of management.
  • Graduates get lots of exposure to different parts of the organisation and, subsequently, develop a holistic understanding of the business. Managers also encourage you to visit other sites to learn how they operate and identify any new opportunities at your site. Graduates get plenty of opportunities to interact with the Senior Leadership Team, including the Managing Director. Through shadowing opportunities, we also gain insight into how Managers organise and complete their day to day tasks. Work hours are also quite flexible. Depending on the site's operations, you could work shift hours or standard business hours.
  • Good variety of work! There is also the opportunity to experience different working environments (i.e. from office to depot) and contribute to high quality projects
  • The down time in between projects and the lack of clear structure or agenda for future tasks.
  • The organisation has not had a Graduate Program prior to 2017, so some Operations Managers are still learning how to best utilise and assign tasks to graduates.
  • Some systems are quite old, which can sometimes make data analysis tedious
  • Depending on the rotation, hours may not be ideal
