Morteros Atlantic is an independent service company, incorporated in the Netherlands, created for export of beef and livestock from (primarily) Uruguay, with Dutch and Uruguayan partners/shareholders. Together they offer many years of experience and know-how in all activities regarding meat, cattle and business, each of them contributing specific national and international knowhow to best take care of clients from anywhere in the world.
Morteros Atlantic being incorporated in Holland offers some advantages, like using the harbor of Rotterdam to benefit from the specific preferential import tax treaty between Mercosur and the EU if the destination of the shipment is within the EU. Also, all parties involved, such as the producers in Uruguay as well as the handling agents in both countries, are very familiar with all necessary formalities; Holland is the biggest importer of Uruguayan meat in the EU, indeed mostly for transit to other countries, within the EU of course without extra taxes and formalities.
Furthermore, Holland has an excellent and well organized national and international transport sector. So, from Holland shipments can be rapidly arranged by Morteros Atlantic to almost any place in the world requested by the client.
But of course, direct shipments from Uruguay to various countries outside the EU are common practice as well; in many cases such shipments present the economically best solution – as well as the fastest.
