In the past, companies have turned to liquidation to solve asset shortfalls. Today, more and more companies are maximizing asset value through Corporate Trade

Corporate trade, or barter, has grown as a solution because it delivers added value for inventory and improves bottom line results. For a variety of reasons – change in market strategy, re-branding, seasonal shifts, supply chain disruptions – companies are faced with holding depreciating assets including: excess inventory, corporate or retail real estate and capital equipment.
