Forward Thinking on Reverse Logistics

Listed in: Reverse Logistics

With more consumers buying online, managing returns becomes a challenge. And returns of large, bulky items are even more complex. End those headaches by letting DM Transportation handle those large parcel returns that FedEx or UPS won’t touch. DM can pick up from the consumer’s room of choice or curbside, or even break down and pack the item. What distinguishes DM from its competition is attentive customer service – DM contacts the consumer within 24 hours of the return order, and picks up within 48. Once it completes the pickup, DM can donate or recycle the item locally, liquidate it, return it to the vendor, or send it back to the retailer. Check out this video today and get started on improving your reverse logistics program with DM Transportation.
