The E-Commerce Hangover – Returns and Reverse Logistics in the growing

E-Commerce and the Internet of Things (IoT) age?

The growth of e-commerce at 15% per year or more is coupled with returns rates at 3-5 times that of brick and mortar stores, up to 40% or more for some categories such as apparel and shoes. In addition, the growth of IoT into all types of products introduces inter-connectivity and ease of use issues that significantly increase returns.


The Reverse Logistics Association works with members from manufacturing, retailing and the 3rd party solutions providers to develop best in class initiatives to make customers happy and to stop the increased flow of returns for products that are not defective (estimated at 80-90% of all returns), and increase profitability for all companies.


Key Points: 

• The current returns issues and the size of the reverse logistics market, along with today’s answers to mitigate losses
• Discuss the retail landscape and consumer expectations, marketplace winners and losers, and the new business models incorporating reverse logistics solutions as part of the sales process
• Explore future technologies to reduce returns, increase the yield at point of returns processing, options for remarketing, and analyze highest recovery channels.
