Direct-to-consumer business is growing rapidly from traditional brick and mortar, but customer returns continue to be a cost borne by the supplier. In the appliance sector, returns can be over 4% of units sold – and even higher on seasonal products. In this webinar, through the example of the appliance business, you’ll learn key areas for suppliers to turn this cost activity into a profit center, with useful takeaways no matter what sector you operate in.
With extremely tight margins, a product that cannot be sent to landfill due to refrigerants (damaging ozone layer) and bulky, heavy units with a high return freight cost dictates that these costs are a drain on profitability – but they really provide an opportunity. This webinar will cover:
The current state of reverse logistics
Cost reduction strategies (both pre-purchase and post-purchase)
Triple bottom line opportunities
Freight negotiations strategies
By attending this webinar, you’ll understand freight strategies for returned merchandise, key opportunities in analyzing returned merchandise, and re-selling strategies.
This session will be invaluable to operations, facilities, procurement, and transportation managers, and will also provide fascinating insights and learning for anyone involved in the supply chain.
