Serving Businesses Throughout Illinois & The Midwest

As a major transportation center for air and land, Chicago is an important component in global distribution. Chicago has the largest hub in the railroad industry, with very few rail cars traveling transcontinental without coming through the city. 

Mercury has built and constantly reviews our carrier network to meet our client’s requirements, working with the best local and national carriers to provide you a single point of contact for all of your shipping needs.

Incredible customer service and highly responsive. I have never had a better team helping to ensure our critical materials make it exactly where we need them, internationally, in such a timely manner.

- Laboratory Operations Manager at a Life Science Research Company

Our Customer Experience

Mercury saves us money and is helpful in getting insight when major couriers' own tracking information does not provide answers. We also love our pick-up handler!

Arranging the shipment was easy and it was great to talk to the same people who understood my shipping requirements. The shipment was quickly delivered to Denmark and arrived frozen.

Prompt service and fair pricing.

- Network Engineer at a Trading Company

Our Customer Experience

Anytime a package is late or cannot be delivered, Mercury contacts me and they will reroute a package if the address was incorrect. I don’t get that from anyone else.
