“I started doing research of other sellers, and came across Via Trading,” commented Max. “Logistically, Via Trading was the best supplier for me, because I could order from them, and get loads shipped from WM’s facility in North Las Vegas. We are in the same city as WM’s originating merchandise, so there is minimal transportation cost.”
By working with Via Trading, Max was able to make his business model work the way he envisioned. “The pallets are delivered to our private yard. We post pictures, with prices attached, on our Facebook page. Once sold, the pallets are picked up by customers from our yard.”
LP is mostly a virtual business, with most transactions completed over the Internet. Although Max once visited Via Trading’s warehouse, he prefers to place his orders online, and get pallets shipped to his yard from WM’s local facility.
In addition to the types of goods offered, and the convenience of virtual shopping, Max also enjoys working with Via Trading because of their great customer service. “Our rep, Adan, is very easy to work with,” said Max. “He is nothing short of a rock star.” Although his business is only a few months old, it has already enabled Max to turn a profit.
