Asset recovery and Asset relocation, often called reverse logistics, accounts for around 1% of the U.S. gross national product and is essential in maintaining competitiveness and crosses many industry sectors.
For many companies this process is a recognized source for additional revenues, automatic replenishment, speed-to-market, customer service and meeting a surge in product demands from different regions. Additionaly, reverse logistics programs are also initiated for repairs, refurbishment, remarketing, and the final disposition of products.
From the initial corporate decision, to the 3PL’s creation of an asset recovery and/or relocation plan to the local service providers packaging, transportation consolidation/storage and eventual shipping out of product, this is a dynamic moving process.
