Who we are
what we do

Xcess Trading Ltd was founded in September 2011 to help UK retailers, distributors and brands to manage their asset disposal for overstocks, EOL and customer returns.

Managing the end-to-end sale and logistics of this stock into non-conflicting channels around the UK, Europe and ROW is our USP.

Since our acquisition of a computer & smartphone refurbishment company in 2017, we have been able to take the returns management process in house, allowing us to control the quality & grading of the stock we process.

The company has also grown its presence in the promotion & incentive markets, which include staff gifting & corporate loyalty programmes. This has allowed brands that we work with to find new business channels into blue chip companies looking to provide their staff or customers with discounted gifts or rewards.

According to studies by the Circularity Gap over 90% of the world’s resources – which include metals, plastics, wood, concrete, chemicals and all other materials in circulation – are used only once, in a single product, before becoming waste. If you look at the consumer electronics and technology sectors, smartphones & laptops are updated every 12 months. As part of our ongoing commitment to become more sustainable, Xcess offers our retailers, distributors and brands the ability to redistribute and refurbish returned products. This, therefore, reduces the single use and throw away culture that fast-paced product launches & retail returns can create.
