LET’S WALK THROUGH THE “BUY LOW, SELL HIGH” PROCESS STEP-BY-STEP
- You purchase a container for $2000 circa.
- You sell it in China for $3000 circa.
- You make a profit.
It’s common knowledge that prices are determined by supply and demand. In developing countries many containers remain idle, because demand is low and as a result the prices as well.
Our network in South America enables us to move these containers to China where demand is much higher and therefore the price for your container is much higher. When they reach the destination we sell them and make you a substantial capital gain of the difference.
Many clients ask what Davenport Laroche gets from the deal? Well, our commission for these trades is only 5% of the profit (and we also get a commission from the buyers in China), Many of these buyers then lease us those containers and we expand our fleet and our market share. We strive to provide professional service while growing our business.
Trading is a very profitable business providing many opportunities with a decent return on investment and predictable investment security.
Buying and selling containers is quite simple. You don’t need Davenport Laroche to buy a container in South America. You don’t need us to send it to China. But you do need us to send it to China at no cost to you. Because we eliminate the transportation costs by leasing your containers through our network.
