    Rob Garrison

    My name is Rob Garrison. As a long time importer, I was frustrated by the risk, inefficiency, waste, and complexity I experienced.

    We built the Mercado import management system (#IMS) to address these issues by connecting you to your suppliers and trading partners, connecting your supply to your demand, and connecting your sourcing, buying, and logistics teams. The Mercado IMS contains the automation, workflow, and process you need to create an efficient, effective, and reliable import supply chain. Great solutions and features 'out of the box' will transform how you plan, buy, and ship your products.
