Mercator Cargo is a founding member of the global freight forwarding network Marco Polo Line (MPL). What does this mean for you, the potential (or existing) customer?
Marco Polo Line was founded with the intention to give independent freight forwarders (like Mercator Cargo) advantages that the bigger freight forwarders have traditionally enjoyed over the independent forwarders.
The first, and biggest impact that Mercator finds invaluable on a daily basis (both for our customers, and our operations in the office) is the personal contacts that we now have globally. Marco Polo Line holds annual conferences, where members can meet face-to-face and build working relationships. Mercator Cargo takes full advantage of these conferences, sending at least two members of the freight forwarding team. These personal contacts allow Mercator to arrange shipments seamlessly, using valuable local knowledge, and offer to-door shipments in almost any country in the world (thanks to our global partners).
The other advantage is that members are ‘vetted’, tried and tested (you cannot join MPL by just filling a form in). Membership is monitored, so if there are problems, these can be raised and eradicated. This means that our partner offices are trustworthy and reliable to handle your shipments, where ever they are in the world.
These are just a few examples of the benefits of choosing Mercator as your freight forwarder.
