What is reverse logistics management?
Simply put, reverse logistics management is the handling of returns, pickups and quality inspections after a shipment has reached the final customer. It involves the flow of returned products from the consumer back to the retailer, distributor and brand. In many cases, the retailer, distributor and brand are the same.
Why is reverse logistics management so important?
Reverse logistics management has become increasingly relevant with the rise of online shopping. Customers are no longer willing to place an online order if the shipping and return policy is unclear or overly complicated. If online retailers want to continue to drive sales, they cannot compete on price alone. They need to make their return policies as convenient as possible for customers. Reverse logistics management aims to simplify online shopping returns while providing customers with a better quality product through quality control practices.
