THE STORY

Due to supply chain logistical issues, a Buyers Access client faced an unworkable challenge sourcing 144 washing machines within 3 days. With a critical rehab timeline to maintain, and specific green initiatives mandated by loan documents, the client Asset Manager contacted their Buyers Access Account Manager for support.

After discussing specific product requirements, our team coordinated with our dedicated supplier network to locate and secure timely delivery of the required washing machines. The machines were sourced through the manufacturer, and the Supplier’s logistic team was onsite to coordinate container drop and delivery of 144 front load washing machines within 3 days.
