ABOUT US

At Merama we are on a path to becoming the best and largest online group of Latin American brands. We partner with the leading merchants across Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru) and fuel their hypergrowth by providing knowledge, capital, and technology. Unlike the dozens of Amazon aggregators that have popped up over the past few years, Merama is focused on Latin America, works with very few partners, and does not purchase companies outright. Instead, we focus on identifying the top few merchants in key categories and selectively partner with the best by purchasing a stake in their business. Our company was founded in 2020 by a group of entrepreneurs and former consultants, marketers, logistics professionals and e-commerce experts. We are backed by a world class team of individual & institutional investors and we seek to change the E-commerce landscape in LATAM.

  • Implement best procurement practices to achieve the most competitive and flexible transport, clearance, storage and distribution terms.
  • Design, build, lead and develop a world class logistics team.
