Re-ordering the import world.

We envision a future where all brands are connected across their first, middle, and final mile. One where large and small importers can communicate effectively with the people who make and move their products. Through simplicity and service, to insights and sustainability, we help brands and businesses re-order the import world, one order at a time.


Our Story

Manual supply vs digital demand

For a number of years, we’ve seen a high level of investment made in the final mile – the last stage of the supply chain.
As eCommerce has boomed, retailers have focused on how to deliver the best experience for their customers, investing heavily in the final mile of their supply chain.

In stark contrast, the first mile has been left in the dark ages. Accounting for up to 80% of the global supply chain, upstream operations have changed very little in decades, leading to billions lost every year due to defective products, late shipments, and re-work.
Rob Garrison started Mercado with the belief that there was a simple solution to help businesses connect the missing link in their supply chain.
Alongside an established leadership team, Rob is now leveraging decades of experience in logistics, tech, and the supply chain world to build the leading import order management system and supply-side network infrastructure.

The entire Mercado team believes in this possibility and is passionate about helping businesses stop relying on email and spreadsheets and move to a cloud-based, digital-first model.

Connecting brands with the people who make and move their products.
