Expanding your global reach?
M-Edge uses FedEx Electronic Trade Documents to make international shipping easier.
When a niche market provider wanted to ship his product internationally, he chose a shipping provider who could accelerate his shipping time while also reducing his international documentation. Patrick Mish founded M-Edge Accessories in 2006 in his garage. Since then, he’s watched his company become the industry leader in providing high-quality, stylish e-reader accessories. In the last four years, M-Edge developed several lines of e-reader enhancing accessoriess for a wide variety of e-reader devices including Kindle, nookTM, Sony Reader Daily Edition, and the recently announced Apple iPad.
