Sustainability and the Circular Economy

How can a returns processing system positively affect sustainability and support the circular economy?

Proper returns management can save costs through reduced fees paid to disposal facilities, improved inventory control and generating revenue through refurbished and resold items.

Returns Processing

According to the National Retail Federation and other sources, retail returns accounted for between $814 Billion and $859 Billion in returned products and lost revenue. 

While retailers have begun to revise and tighten up their returns policies, experts don’t foresee a dramatic decrease in returns. 

Until now, the retail supply community has not had an effective way to audit returned products and reconcile with negotiated allowances. 

Direct to consumer shipments of apparel and home goods account for over 50% of eCommerce returns. 

The Octolan Returns Desk helps companies from start-up stage to enterprise organizations manage their returns process. 

We don’t just provide technology, we enable a repeatable process that can optimize your returns processing. 

Fight Fraud!  With our image capture technology we can associate the dispositioning workflow with images throughout the returns process to enable greater fraud detection and handling capabilities 

Are you staging your returns when they arrive?  How can this improve customer satisfaction and decrease returned product shrinkage? 


It’s all too easy to claim “supply chain problems” in today’s environment.  With the focus of the world on supply chain and the now visible challenges, seasoned veterans know this is nothing new.  We all have better processes, skilled people and enhanced technology.  Our challenge now comes from reverse logistics. 

A singular definition for reverse logistics seems easy enough: 
Reverse logistics is the process of managing product returns, repairs, and recycling in the supply chain. It involves handling goods from the point of consumption back to their origin, with the aim of reducing waste and maximizing value recovery. 

Yet the definition of a Reverse Logistics System or Returns Management System becomes more hazy.  With most of the technical solutions in the marketplace focused on the consumer experience of creating a return within their eCommerce platform, the identified process stops once the customer releases control of the merchandise.  What happens next?  How do we ensure we’re recapturing maximum value of the returned products?  How do we responsibly repackage, reuse or recycle products?
