Returns processing is one of the more complex processes within the warehouse environment. At Spaceguard we design and manufacture solutions to streamline warehouse returns processing to ensure viable returned items are released back into stock as fast as possible.
Returns are also often referred to as 'reverse logistics' and getting the workflow right can make a large improvement to the overall efficiency of the warehouse space.
The speedy processing of returns is especially important for customer satisfaction. A number of studies suggest that a particularly unsatisfactory return experience can impact on customer trust, with many shoppers refusing to buy from companies with a slow and laborious returns process.
We have an in depth guide explaining the most up to date research on the returns process and what that means for your business, the article can be found here.
