Sorting returned products manually can be a time-consuming and error-prone process, leading to inefficiencies and increased labour costs. A sortation automation solution can help overcome these challenges by automating the sorting process, ensuring that returned products are handled efficiently, accurately, and quickly. A sortation solution can quickly and accurately identify returned products and sort them based on predetermined criteria, such as their destination, type, or condition to ensure that the returned products are processed appropriately.
As the volume of returned items increases, it can be challenging to scale reverse logistics operations efficiently. Picking automation solutions can help facilitate scalability by automating processes and increasing throughput, allowing the warehouse to handle larger volumes of returns without adding additional labour or resources. Picking automation solutions can help warehouses improve the efficiency, accuracy, scalability, and cost-effectiveness of reverse logistics operations, making it an essential consideration for warehouses looking to optimize their reverse logistics process
Reverse logistics involves tracking and tracing the movement of goods from the point of return to the final disposition. Warehouse Execution System provides real-time visibility into the status of each item, enabling warehouse staff to track the progress of goods as they move through the return process. The software helps manage the workflow of the return process, ensuring that each step is completed in the correct sequence and that the right people are notified when actions are required. This improves efficiency and reduces errors, leading to cost savings and improved customer satisfaction.
A leading fashion brand and conglomerate recognized the need to establish an efficient return handling process to manage the high reverse logistics cost associated with a return rate of around 30%. The goal was to streamline exchanges, repairs, and recycling, reducing waste and promoting sustainability. To achieve this, our company implemented an advanced and scalable sortation system that includes sorting robots, making inventory handling a breeze. The system can process up to 20,000 sorts per hour with high accuracy and can be installed quickly. Our software also plays a critical role in maintaining inventory accuracy, reducing errors, and enhancing overall efficiency.
