Gardner’s topic “Maximizing Efficiencies In Reverse Logistics to Increase ROI and Customer Satisfaction,” will encompass a 45-minute session examining the bottom-line impact of reverse logistics operations, in addition to proven strategies on strengthening relationships with customers to boost profitability.
“Reverse logistics is a complex process that can unfortunately be an afterthought in supply chain planning for some companies,” said Gardner. “Interlog Summer attracts a sophisticated audience for delving deeper into this crucial topic. Our session will cover a range of subjects including the global scope of reverse logistics management, and best practices for testing and repair operations. We’ll also highlight hidden costs and successful techniques for MRP to improve the returns process, as well as explore the link between reverse logistics and a company’s balance sheet and income statement. The audience should anticipate actionable insight that they can immediately put into practice.”
“Interlog’s roundtables offer a unique educational experience based on the attendee’s job function,” said Sara Mueller, conference director, Interlog Summer. “Hosted by industry experts, they will feature discussions on the various challenges service professionals face and innovative solutions for success.”
