Are you maximising the full value of your returns?

At Unipart Logistics, we have developed a six lens approach through which we support customers through the inception and set up of returns management solutions that focus on the bottom line.

As shopping habits change and consumer expectations rise, traditional returns processing is struggling to keep up, leading many retail enterprises to consider new or innovative ways of managing reverse logistics. The shift towards an omni-channel retail experience has driven enterprises to invest heavily in technology that analyses the way returns are processed.

Although Supply chain technology is more sophisticated than ever before, without clearly defined objectives, specialists in data analytics, and an understanding of how to get the full value from the technology, enterprises run the risk of investing heavily in systems and processes without getting the full value back from them. Technology alone cannot match the benefits that can be achieved by focusing on the right disposition routes for returned product, which may involve replacing parts or packaging to increase the yield price.

Customers increasingly want a returns processing partner who is as focused as they are on cash and the bottom line impact.

Unipart Logistics’ are rethinking reverse, the Unipart Way

Harnessing years of experience in the repair and recycling of assets, we are experts in the dynamic disposition of returned assets to maximise the value returned to our customers based on asset condition, customer demand, market price, and the cost to refurbish or repair.
