Channel Surplus has just launched a new Virtual Warehouse for Distributors to list excess or aging inventory. For Channel Customers, Channel Surplus provides visibility to inventory that needs to be liquidated. As a Channel Customer, you can freely review all posted inventories on Channel Surplus without fees or logging in. Should you see inventory of interest, you can place an anonymous bid which will generate an alert to the Distributor. Only if the Distributor accepts your bid will the basic contact information of both parties be exchanged via Channel Surplus. Should your bid not be accepted, it will remain anonymous and be discarded.

Louie Llamas, co-founder of Channel Surplus, said, “During my years in the industry working with Distribution, I dealt with recurring price protection issues related to aging inventory which often led to unhealthy transactions. These transactions were typically limited to a select group and were often disruptive to the overall market. The aging inventory issues still remain, but Channel Surplus provides a discreet platform for Distributors to present their aging inventory without disruption. It’s a win-win for both the Distributor and the Channel Customer”.

Channel Surplus is endorsed by NASBA—The Association of Channel Resellers ( NASBA Executive Director Pat Taylor notes, “Channel Surplus is a reliable source for finding excess inventory from Mainstream Distributors. The published list of approved Distributors is a great representation of very credible Distributors. In line with NASBA's goals of providing empowering services for resellers, Channel Surplus brings to the surface new opportunities that were not easily accessible. I’m certainly optimistic about the value it will bring to the Channel and to NASBA members”.
