Mercury Freight Invests, Partners with Asian Worldwide Services to Fortify Global Logistics Network

Mercury Freight International, Inc. (MFII), one of the country’s leading total logistics solutions providers, has fortified its global network strength when it recently invested and subsequently partnered with the Singapore-based Asian Worldwide Services (AWS).

The partnership with AWS has officially paved the way for MFII to further strengthen its worldwide reach in the international logistics business not merely as a network agent in the Philippines but as an integral part and centerpiece of the global network itself.

AWS, whose formation was spearheaded by the same person who were the former owners and established well-renowned networks such as Globelink  and AGS, is backstopped by a group of dynamic, enthusiastic, forward-looking, and relatively young global logistics professionals with a combined experience of over 20 years in the international freight forwarding business, including MFII top executives.

Given the acknowledged experience and expertise of its incorporators in the less than container load (LCL) and NVOCC segments of the international logistics business, AWS seeks to become one of the leading cargo consolidators in the Asian region in almost no time at all.

While AWS’ foremost strength is LCL and cargo consolidation and de-consolidation services to over 500 destinations worldwide, its logistics offerings also include FCL or full container load services, door-to-door services and Customs clearance, total logistics, handling of cross-trade and project shipments, warehousing and cargo storage, and air freight.

AWS largely banks on its professional and committed team drawing strong support from its satellite offices and worldwide service network. The logistics network shall also draw strength from the 26 years of expertise and excellence of network part-owner and partner MFII in the global freight forwarding business.

“We serve with care,” is the operational maxim of AWS which basically runs parallel to the thrust of MFII to continuously strive for excellence in every aspect of its operations leading to the ultimate satisfaction of its constantly increasing roster of clients.

AWS is also determined in pursuing its goal of becoming the most outstanding NVOCC in the world that shall continuously provide its valued customers and partners with quality, efficient, and reliable worldwide cargo forwarding services consistently anchored on integrity and only with the foremost aim of soliciting great satisfaction.

On the part of MFII, the investment and partnership with AWS gives it better control of its global logistics network. It has likewise strengthened its position in the global consolidation market as it is able to tap into AWS’ network of partners to offer an even wider market for its own clientele.

Mr. Chris Coching, President and Chief Operating Officer of MFII, says that the decision to invest and partner with AWS is consistent with the company’s constant thrust of forging alliances with global logistics companies that share its business approach and vision.

“In establishing our network partners, we look for reliable and professional companies that have the same knowledge and experience as we do in this industry, besides having good integrity of course. AWS certainly fits the bill to a T so the decision rather came easy for MFII,” says Chris Coching

“We are extremely confident that the partnership with AWS shall accelerate the synergetic growth of both MFII and AWS in practically no time at all, and thus achieve both our visions of becoming the best in the business,” the MFII President and COO enthused.

“Although the partnership with AWS is again a new set-up in terms of global logistics network operations, we would like to assure our clients that our current team has been known in the industry and together with our other offices and network partners all over the world through AWS; MFII can only assure them an even better service from hereon,” he stated.

The MFII President added that this early, they have been constantly developing synergistic and operational meaning for AWS, notable among which is: “Always Will Succeed…Your cargo to A World in Scope,” which is also highlighted in its website at
