A PostalVision 2020 Special One-Day Excursion

Thursday,  September 20, 2018

PostalVision 2020 and the Reverse Logistics Association (RLA) are pleased to announce a collaborative event to be held Thursday, September 20, 2018 — “Return to the Future.”  This one-day “excursion” will be focused on the growing opportunities and challenges being seen with product returns.

Consumers are demanding fast, easy, and inexpensive product returns options.  Shippers are scurrying to develop low-cost and customer-centric services for consumer returns.  Retailers are exploring different returns models that keep customers happy but also keep their costs of returns under control, or even make returns a profit center for the business!  And there is an entire supply chain for processing and transporting product returns that in many ways differs from outgoing product processing and delivery.  The “reverse logistics” supply chain includes businesses that not only provide shipping/transportation solutions, but also businesses that inspect product returns to determine next steps and destination, businesses that sell product returns on secondary markets, businesses that warehouse and inventory returns, and a host of software and system providers linking and passing information within a complex supply chain.

PostalVision and RLA are in the process of identifying speakers and agenda for this event — if you are interested in participating, please contact us.
