Exporting to Mexico from the UK
Shipping goods to Mexico from the UK can be handled completely by Mercator. We are able to arrange a fully comprehensive export shipping service from your door in the UK through to your customer’s door in Mexico. We have a partner agent based in Mexico City who is able to handle the customs clearance, documentation and delivery in Mexico. We can also offer part shipping services, depending upon the INCOTERM you have agreed with your customer. We can handle any term from FOB (free on board) through to full DDP (delivery, duty paid).
There are weekly departures from various UK sea freight ports (including Tilbury and Felixstowe) to Mexico’s main port just outside Mexico City: Veracruz. Transit times are about 21 days from the UK to Mexico, some services take a little longer and you will need to factor in time for UK export clearance, loading, unloading and customs clearance in Mexico.
We are also able to handle air freight shipping to Mexico, departures are more regular than sea freight and take a matter of hours (if using a direct service – again, you will need to factor in time at both end of the shipment for clearance and loading/unloading). Air freight to Mexico generally departs from Heathrow and arrives into Mexico City airport.
Your choice of air or sea freight will depend on how urgent your export to Mexico is, and will also depend on the size and weight of the shipment. If you have a shipment which is smaller than a full container, it is possible to select an LCL (less than container load) service to Mexico where your pallet(s) share a shipping container with other goods (there are some restrictions on the nature of goods if using this service). We handle all sizes of shipments to Mexico, from single pallets through to multiple shipping containers and even out of gauge shipping (on flat racks/open top containers, etc).
We handle all kinds of commodities exporting to Mexico. The majority of exports that we handle are UK manufactured machinery or components. Our expertise in these areas means we are well placed to handle the documentation and shipping of this particular kind of goods from the UK to Mexico.
