What is Reverse Logistics?
Reverse logistics is conventional logistics in the opposite direction — goods moving from the customer back to the manufacturer or distributor. There are two types of reverse logistics: consumer returns to stores and store returns to the manufacturer or distributor. Each poses unique challenges for companies that ship electronics and other dangerous goods.
Smooth Customer Returns = More Return Customers
E-commerce customers don't want to know their return shipments are subject to all the regulations governing hazardous materials transport. They just want their refund or exchange as soon as possible.
- Delivering all battery shipments with all the labels and markings necessary for compliant returns.
- Being prepared to send your customers fully compliant lithium battery packaging.
- Making sure your customer service teams are trained to correctly answer customers' questions about return shipments.
