Carbon Market Traders
Eco Credit Traders specialize in the generation and brokering of LCFS credits on behalf of owners and operators of electric lift truck fleets.
Eco Credit Traders will handle the end to end process of applying for credits, filing all compliance paperwork, and selling credits to deficit holders on behalf of our clients. There is no up front cost to the service. Fees are charged as a percentage against the revenue generated when client credits are sold.
Our Principle Pillars
In order to succeed as a fiduciary partner, Eco Credit Traders LLC strives to facilitate the best financial interests of our clients. Four key operating principles provide the road map to this pursuit.
We recognize that the core business’ of our lift truck fleet owner clients are in logistics, retailing, wholesaling, and manufacturing. At ECT we strive to manage the LCFS program available to electric MHE owners without ever making it a distraction from their core business.
Maximizing transaction value means knowing when and how to sell LCFS credits. This requires analyzing historical transactions, trends, and estimating outstanding credit deficits of high carbon fuel producers. It also requires large lot selling of aggregated credits to increase the transaction appeal to fuel producers with credit deficits they are seeking to make up.
Many alternative LCFS generation and brokering services available offer a mysterious quarterly check representing an unknown share of transaction value, based on an undisclosed fee structure. ECT instead expose the transaction value for our clients to help them better understand the LCFS marketplace. In exposing the value and charging a fair and reasonable predefined percentage fee against the transaction value ECT ensure clients are informed and comfortable with the service.
This is the primary core principle which propels ECT into the position of the material handling industries preeminent source for LCFS services. By maximizing transaction value in a volatile trading market and charging only a nominal % fee after transactions close, ECT can provide more revenue after service fees to lift fleet owners of all sizes.
