Supply Chain Management typically ends at the end user. The original item has been manufactured, shipped and received by the consumer. Generally, a lack of thought goes into the process of returning products and what to do with them when received back in-house. Most return management processes are vaguely outlined. Information is unclear as to what returns exist in the pipeline and their status. Are the items to be repaired, replaced, refurbished, recycled or trashed? Reverse logistics handles the processes that are used to return products, parts and materials from the end user or final consumer. Reverse logistics aims to increase the bottom line for businesses with the creation and implementation of improved internal processes.
Reverse logistics helps companies to quantify and calculate the product returns from the end users. The processes in this area are coordinated to use the returned product as an asset and provide additional income with the implementation and coordination of sound business practices.
Reverse logistics processes can be added within emerging and established tech or with those with no existing supply chain management processes. Especially in the data center and data security industries who have to replace parts across the globe for high paying clients. Often, within the service level agreement for the client’s of these types of companies, a specific KPI of 98% or higher is required as it pertains to uptime and service parts replenishment. Reverse logistics is an area that addresses returned items. This particular process usually has little organization and supervision and is generally seen as a loss to businesses and simply a part of the cost of doing business.
