With today’s focus on ecommerce fulfillment and the increase in ecommerce returns, it is essential for companies to have efficient reverse logistics solutions in place. Returns processing, or reverse logistics, is just one piece of the larger ecommerce fulfillment process.
Leverage returns processing to benefit your business
Having a comprehensive reverse logistics program is very important, especially as the shopping industry is moving away from brick and mortar stores, and increasingly online. A reverse logistics solution that allows for convenient and easy returns on the customer’s side is becoming more and more critical.
There are many ways in which this can benefit your business. When you plan ahead for returns, you can reduce related costs and losses. However, the main benefit to having an exceptional reverse logistics system in place is customer retention. If a customer receives an item that is damaged, an incorrect size, or even the incorrect item, the way you handle returns can help maintain or even improve faith in your brand. Making the return experience easy for your customers by providing a return label in the original package and paying for return shipping can build great brand loyalty and increase your competitive advantage.
Delivering valuable insights that inform business decisions
At ITS Logistics, we know how important it is to have a great reverse logistics solution. We analyze your volume of returns, identify any patterns with returned products, and continuously improve your solution. Your percentage of sales lost to product returns is one of the metrics we provide, as well. Whether the problem is happening in the quality assurance stage, the manufacturing stage or the packaging stage, we can help you identify what’s happening and implement a solution.
