The Simplest Biz – Shipping Products Brokerage Business

We have partnered with John Wilker, founder of The Simplest Biz, to offer you his knowledge and insights on how you can start and grow your own Shipping Products Brokerage Business.

John has developed a simple yet effective business model for providing middle-man services for businesses that ship and receive products. Specifically, he acquires industrial byproducts, the kind of stuff that’s used for shipping like pallets, cardboard boxes, crates, and sells them to others for a profit.

Anyone can learn how to do this business, and you can start it as a side-hustle or grow it into a full-time small business. There is very little investment required up-front, and you don’t necessarily even need your own truck. There is also no inventory, no warehouse, and no employee issues to worry about. All it takes is determination, the willingness to develop contacts in the industry, and to learn the proven business model for The Simplest Biz.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Q. What is a Shipping Products Brokerage Business?
    A. It’s a brokerage or middle-man services business for companies that ship and receive products. Specifically, you acquire industrial byproducts, used for shipping like pallets, cardboard boxes, crates, and sell them to other companies for a profit. Although it’s more than just pallets, it may be referred to as a pallet flipping business. 
  • Q. Is this the same as a Pallet Flipping Business?
    A. Yes, but it’s also more than just flipping pallets – it can also include cardboard boxes, crates, and other shipping supplies.
  • Q. What’s the investment required to start a pallet flipping business?
    A. This type of business usually requires minimal capital investment. You don’t even need to own a truck to get started, since you can easily rent a truck to move the loads of shipping products initially. The biggest investment will be your focus and effort to learn how to do this and then get out in your area and make the contacts.  
  • Q. Who is this business for?
    A. Shipping Products Brokering, or pallet flipping, is for anyone who is will to invest the time and effort. It mostly requires determination, the willingness to develop contacts in the industry, and to learn the proven business model for The Simplest Biz. 
  • Q. Can you make money flipping pallets?
    A. Yes, you can make money in the pallet brokerage or flipping business. While there are no guarantees that you will be profitable, plenty of people from all types of backgrounds have created successful small businesses by applying the proven techniques shared by John Wilker in his Simplest Biz program. 
  • Q. Is this the same as a Pallet Selling Business?
    A. Yes, that is one component of The Simplest Business. One opportunity of this business involves the brokering or flipping of shipping pallets (wood and synthetic pallets of all sizes) that you acquire from companies who have no need for them and selling them at a profit to other nearby companies that do require them. Unlike some pallet selling business models, however, you will likely never have to store or keep inventory of pallets or other shipping product (i.e. drums, barrels, boxes). Instead, you are simply moving them from one location to another.
