Mercur Südlogistik Speditions-GmbH, based in Mannheim, is a forwarding company for international part and full loads. Equipped with the appropriate certifications, the company focused on the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and thus distinguished itself by a comparatively high degree of specialization and a low dependence on individual customers and suppliers.
In the course of their age succession, the equal partners Georg Gruber and Thomas Kraft wanted to sell their shares without endangering the continued existence of the company and thereby securing the jobs of the employees. In the course of their research on the process of a company sale, Gruber and Kraft became aware of CARL. Shortly after a company valuation using CARL's digital company value calculator and initial evaluation by a CARL analyst, the discussions regarding the approach of a buyer were quickly intensified.
