The numbers that accompany reverse logistics aren’t inspiring. It’s one of the major reasons behind businesses across the globe forfeiting sales, giving unrealistic discounts and absorbing regular disruptions in supply chain operations.
According to research, in the US alone the cost of return deliveries will be $550 billion in the year 2020.

Having said that, it’s still not too late. By embracing an advanced supply chain and logistics platform, businesses can optimize costs of returns, minimize risks and make the entire reverse logistics process transparent and reliable.
