UK Buyers Can Now Purchase Small Truckloads!

We’re so excited to announce that the Amazon Liquidation Auctions EU site is getting a new marketplace feature! Starting May 2021- UK buyers will get Small Truckload options when purchasing customer returns on Amazon EU!

We will break down what that means for our B-Stock UK buyers (benefits on benefits on benefits!) and give a quick overview of the Amazon EU marketplace, as well as ways to save on shipping. Let’s jump right in.

Benefits to B-Stock Buyers

Similar to what’s offered in Poland and Spain, Amazon will soon be able to offer a Small Truckload option out of the UK. What does that mean?

Well, for starters:

  • Accessibility to lower-priced lots
  • Great way to get started on the Amazon EU marketplace
  • Smaller option to purchase rather than a full truckload
  • Cheaper shipping option but with more inventory than LTL

All in all, buyers will have an even better chance to try new inventory! This variety is important when it comes to finding what works best for you and your customers. Being able to choose smaller offerings means you get to try different things, and more often. Now, you will find more focused auctions that are right for you and have a more cost-effective way to get involved.

More ways to source on Amazon EU

In the UK, as of now, you mainly see auctions for Full Truckloads (23 pallets). Now, you will get the option to browse Small Truckload auctions with 12 possible pallet spaces. You will see this abbreviated as STL on B-Stock.

Note: The Amazon STL offering in Poland and Spain is 16 pallets.

If you’re more of a visual person, here is an idea of the size difference between Full Truckload (FTL), Less than Truckload (LTL), and Small Truckload (STL).
