Customers Need Easy Returns.Tompkins Delivers Seamless Reverse Logistics.

Great returns make for great customer service – and customers remember. 

“Reverse logistics is not the same as forward logistics. You need more than a returns center and a liquidation center. True omnichannel reverse options make happy customers – customers who return. And 3PLs that offer reverse omnichannel options earn more margin on each shipping label.”

Reverse Logistics: Handling the Hassle of Bad Returns

Returns can be a hassle for customers and businesses, but reverse logistics is not the same as forward logistics.

Simply adding returns and liquidation centers leads to manual and disconnected processes, piecemeal solutions that lack visibility into returns data and metrics, inflexible return experiences for customers, and an inability to capitalize on resell opportunities.

Your operations wind up reacting to customer questions instead of offering automatic updates and notifications. Your customers then look elsewhere.
