What is reverse logistics?

The movement of the goods from the customers to the suppliers’ location is called reverse logistics. The process is reversed as in the regular flow, the goods go from the supplier to the customer. There are several reasons for it:

  • The shipped goods are damaged;
  • The goods do not match the description;
  • The customer does no longer need the goods;
  • The returned goods have to be stored;
  • Further processing of the returned goods.
