Mercator was founded in 1991 by our MD, Paul, who recognised the industry's trend towards specialist services at that time. By this point, Paul had already spent the best part of twenty years of his career in the shipping industry. Having worked for P&O as a 'bunker broker' buying fuel for the ships, and then onto working as an import and export account manager in Morrison Pollofen & Blair, and then in Abco Shipping, Paul gained the knowledge base of international trade that allowed him to set up his own freight forwarding company.

Mercator was soon established as the UK's leading freight forwarder for oriental rugs and carpets. Through extensive work, contacts and knowledge, Mercator now proudly takes its place as one of the UK's leading freight forwarder of deep sea imports and exports.
