Liquidating distressed inventory

Many of the world’s top manufacturers, including one of America’s largest manufacturers of home appliances, are using a web-based, automated auction approach and increasing recovery for their returned and excess merchandise by 30 to 80 percent and sometimes much more.

A web-based solution is one way to make this happen.

This could entail launching an online auction liquidation marketplace that can be customized, integrated, and marketed based on your unique inventory needs or leveraging an established B2B liquidation marketplace.

Merchandise USA is a wholesale merchandise closeout liquidator in business more than 33 years.

Our distribution warehouse in Chicago, IL has 100,000 square feet filled with overstock clearance inventory, and can accommodate any size shipment.

If in-house bandwidth is tight, sometimes the best choice is to work with a trusted partner whose primary business is providing remarketing solutions for returned and excess merchandise.

The best partners will have a low cost structure, a great reputation among clients, extensive knowledge of the secondary market, and a data-driven, analytical and transparent approach.

What’s more, remarketing to a liquidator can mean a lack of control over who is eventually buying the inventory and how your brand enters the secondary market. Over the past few years a shift has taken place in how organizations manage their returned and overstock inventory: many are bypassing layers of middlemen and incorporating technology-based liquidation programs into their overall business strategy.

So the question becomes: how can an organization update its remarketing program in order to achieve: No. This type of solution allows thousands of buyers to compete for the inventory, pushing prices up (versus a broker negotiating them down).

Targeted demand generation: A good partner will have a proven track record of growing custom buyer bases across all product categories and conditions.
