Why Healthcare and Life Science Companies Choose Mercury Over Competition

When it comes to efficient, reliable, and customer-focused shipping, Mercury stands out as the go-to choice over World Courier. With proactive customs vetting, dedicated customer teams, accurate upfront quotes, and a comprehensive range of logistics services, Mercury offers a seamless and cost-effective solution tailored to meet your specific shipping needs concerning any time- and temperature-sensitive shipment.

Learn More About The Differences:


  • Customs Clearance: Mercury proactively reviews customs paperwork to prevent customs delays. Consequently, the clearance process is usually swift and less stressful.
  • Client Collaboration: Mercury's clients ALWAYS collaborate with their specialized team for each shipment, eliminating the need to navigate automated 1-800 number menus.
  • Dry Ice Efficiency: Thanks to our thorough customs vetting process, ensuring quick release, most Mercury shipments typically require only one replenishment of dry ice when needed.
  • Personalized Support: We offer personalized recommendations and counseling through phone or face-to-face meetings.
  • Accurate Quotes: Quotes for shipments are provided before dispatch and are highly accurate, closely aligning with the final invoice.
  • Comprehensive Shipping Options: Mercury offers a comprehensive range of Time-Sensitive and Temperature-Controlled Shipping options, including Specialty Cold Chain, Expedited Services, Same-Day Delivery, and Next Flight Out (NFO) services, all conveniently available in one location.

World Courier

  • World Courier's failure to anticipate customs issues often leads to significant delays, causing clients considerable expenses and stress from repeated and costly dry ice replenishments
  • World Courier's practice of frequently assigning different points of contact often hinders client continuity, ultimately leading to communication challenges and significant drawbacks in efficiency.
  • When using World Courier services, the process of replenishing dry ice typically takes considerably longer due to additional paperwork requirements that arise during customs clearance.
  • World Courier's inability to match the high level of personalized guidance and support provided by Mercury has a significant impact on clients' overall success.
  • Unlike Mercury's clients, those who rely on World Courier frequently find themselves incurring invoice costs that exceed their initial estimates.
  • World Courier offers only a limited set of services, often necessitating clients to engage additional vendors alongside World Courier for a comprehensive solution, resulting in increased complexity and potentially higher costs.
