As the world gets smaller due to trade and technology, buying scrap metal has become global and easier. Access to larger quantities of scrap metal is not driven so much from buying from sellers who are in the same city, state or country. Buyers can now purchase at best prices globally. For instance, Glomex is a scrap metal company based in Brazil that sells all 5 of the major scrap metals, and sells globally at some of the lowest prices in the international market. Even after shipping and import costs are factored in, purchasing from abroad can be much cheaper than sourcing locally, especially when you are buying from countries with devalued currencies like the Brazil’s currency.
Further, advances in technology allow buyers and sellers to connect online. The Internet facilitates buying and selling of scrap as people can visit websites selling scrap locally and globally. Buyers are also able to enjoy competitive prices because prices are transparent online and this allows them to find the most suitable deals. To further ease the process for buyers, there are websites with verified sellers such as Glomex.
