Mercator is a founding member of a worldwide freight network (MarcoPoloLine). It is using these connections that we are able to offer our customers a comprehensive and well-trusted shipping service to Mexico. We have connections with other freight forwarding firms in Mexico, who we have met personally over the years, have moved cargo with and therefore are tried and tested. We will only request assistance from our trusted partners, so you know that your cargo is in good hands no matter where it is in the world.
Air freight to Mexico takes less than 24 hours (for a direct route) and there are usually daily departures from the main UK airports. It is possible to opt for indirect routes to Mexico, it is worth noting that these can be cheaper than direct flights, but there is always the risk of a delay somewhere in the chain. An indirect route is perfect if you do not quite have enough time for sea freight, but you do not necessarily need the cargo to arrive in Mexico in under a few days.
Sea freight sailings from the UK to Mexico depart several times a week from various ports in the UK. We do try to marry up your shipment with a local UK port (it can reduce trucking costs to the port in the UK), but sometimes it is more economical to choose a carrier from a UK port slightly further away, they may be offering more frequent sailings, or have a quicker route. Sea freight to Mexico tends to take 21 days port to port, you need to add a few days either side for loading, customs clearance etc. Mercator is a small, independently owned freight forwarding company. When you call our team, there are no voice recordings or hold music, you will get through to who you need and speak to a real person. Your shipment will be handled by one member of our team, and you can contact them directly.
