Wholesale Shipping Information
Despite the relatively high cost of fuel, shipping truckloads, pallets and wholesale case lots can be very affordable. Via Trading has developed and fostered relationships with a wide network of carriers to bring you the most competitive shipping rates available.
Shipping wholesale liquidation merchandise is often not as straightforward as shipping regular goods. At Via Trading we use a variety of materials to package and ship our merchandise, the most common being cases, bins, gaylords or shrink-wrapped pallets.
Orders are typically shipped by UPS, LTL (Less than Load) Carriers, Full Trailers or Containers.
The cost of shipping is determined by the destination of the goods, the type of destination, the type of merchandise and the weight or quantity of the merchandise being shipped.
We typically ship out orders within 24 hours of payment though we do also offer same day shipping whenever possible.
