Marketing agencies work with Mercury because they would otherwise spend time figuring out how to make large quantities of shipping labels, calling a carrier for questions and pickups, and tracking packages to make sure they get delivered on time. Our clients find that they often work late at night and need late night pickups. Sometimes they have urgent same day jobs in their office or at various cities outside of their offices and we handle that for them as well. Also the accounting team at these firms can spend a lot of time on express carrier invoices trying to allocate all of their shipping charges for each of their cost centers such as client names or project numbers. Sometimes our clients are sending marketing material to conferences, trade shows or just between offices. These are typically heavier boxes, often more than one box to include a Tradeshow booth and we make this process very simple.
Many Marketing agencies have offices or teams they collaborate with overseas. Creating multiple international shipping labels can be a long and tedious process, our clients find themselves busy and don’t have the time to spend on this sort of shipping task. They rely on our team to create the labels through either a .csv file or the group shipping available on our MyShipNow portal. When shipping swag or items that are complicated to determine the value of internally, many of our clients call our expert team to guide them on determining what value to use and how it will impact the duty and tax rate. They also are not sure whether to use DDP or DDU. Commercial invoices can be complicated and Mercury makes these simple and helps your figure out what duty and tax percentage you’ll pay. The country you are shipping to along with the commodity being shipped will determine your duty and tax rate.
Your agency is made up of high-level professionals with years of experience. Who on your team should be spending their time setting up batch shipments, tracking packages, on the phone with a 1-800 number, dealing with international paperwork, sending material to events and organizing invoices to measure internal costs?
