Why Mercury?

  • Individual Attention- When you are busy or have a problem, you want to speak to a real person, right away. Waiting on hold or speaking to an automated phone attendant isn’t acceptable. At Mercury, we pride ourselves on our responsiveness, giving individual attention to every package and every client. 

  • Expert Team- We understand the impact of late or delayed packages. Mercury’s experienced team proactively tracks and troubleshoots each package to keep you informed and solve issues on your behalf. Call or email us with any questions or issues you have. From customs paperwork to temperature-sensitive options, we’ve seen it all. If it’s new to us, we’ll investigate the possibilities for you. 

  • Single Point of Contact- Unlike other shipping companies whose size might limit their flexibility, we create a solution to accommodate your individual needs. Mercury offers a comprehensive shipping solution for Healthcare & Life Sciences, Professional Services, and Technology companies. With a single point of contact, our team manages all of your global shipping needs. 


Proven Process

After 30+ years of continuous improvement while assisting thousands of businesses and obsessing over our client experience, Mercury’s Proven Process is designed to ask the right questions to prevent common mistakes, avoid shipping delays, and other pitfalls.


Creating a Mercury
Label and Pickup

MyShipNow is our portal used to create and print Mercury labels. Packages are tendered to our Mercury drivers who our clients know on a first-name basis. Packages can be left in a designated area using our Red Mercury Bucket and our drivers can return for a second pickup or wait when clients run behind. Shipments with a Mercury label are brought to one of our offices, where our expert team double-checks addresses, monitors weather at carrier hubs, and checks for labels and required paperwork. That same evening, carriers arrive at Mercury for their final pickup on their way to the airport where all of our clients shipments from that day make their way to the carrier’s hub.

Other Solutions

For pre-printed returns and inbound shipments from suppliers, Mercury offers flexible options to directly create carrier labels and schedule carrier pickups. Every shipment through Mercury is proactively tracked and our expert team is always available for questions or guidance with no 1-800 number.


Customized Reports
and Invoices

Clients receive a sorted and grouped invoice, broken down by internal cost centers such as a client/matter number or project name, that is customized to meet your needs.

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.
