    Freight Forwarding – Shipping to Argentina from the UK

    Argentina is South America’s second largest economy behind Brazil, which is one the world’s high growth markets.  The UK has recently seen a demand for exports to Argentina as a result of the economy’s strength.  Mercator handles shipping to Argentina on a weekly basis, and the demand is increasing.

    Mercator offers multimodal shipping to Argentina from any area in the UK and to any area in Argentina.  We are a small family-run business with a long-standing team of shipping experts who arrange freight shipping on a daily basis.  We pride ourselves on offering a traditional, personal service to all our customers.

    When shipping to Argentina, it is important to choose a freight forwarder who can offer various freight options and have contacts in Argentina.  This is really important because with contacts in Argentina, it is possible for your freight forwarder to arrange to door shipping and customs clearance.  Mercator Cargo is a founding partner of the global network Marco Polo Line (MPL), we have those contacts in Argentina.  In partnership with our agent in Argentina, we can organise all aspects of your shipping, including transit to door and clearing customs.

    Our shipping services to Argentina include the following:

    –          Air freight (cost is calculated by weight and dimensions);
    –          Full container shipping by sea freight (20 foot, 40 foot, or 40 foot high cube, please contact for dimensions – cost is on a per container basis);
    –          Less than container loads shipped by sea freight (where your goods are palletised and share a container with someone else’s goods.  This can save costs in comparison to air freight, the cost is calculated by weight and dimensions).

    Sea freight transit times from the UK to Argentina is about 25 days.  If you are short on time, you may opt for air freight to Argentina, however, this comes at a premium.  You can discuss prices and transit times with our export team, we can provide two quotes; one for air freight and one for sea freight if required so you can compare the costs and benefits.

    In international shipping there is nothing more valuable than being organised and having knowledge in the industry.  For example, using a freight forwarder to handle your shipping to Argentina that does not have experience in this area can end up being costly if mistakes are made.  Mercator has this knowledge, and in combination with our local knowledge in Argentina, you are in safe hands when you choose Mercator to handle your shipping to Argentina.
