Fast receipt for rapid reuse and disposal of products
Returns processing or Returns Process Management (RPM) can suck profits right out of the supply chain. Multiple factors including shipping errors, product recalls or damages in transit cause returns that many suppliers, distributors or manufacturers are forced to keep. Other returns may be refused and returned to the customer or may be returned because they were not sold. Some returns may require a return merchandise authorization (RMA) while others may be returned on a blind (also called blanket) authorization.
