The arrival of E –commerce has meant more work for logistic companies, globally. India is at the vanguard of this booming market & has emerged as a major destination for E-commerce ventures.

What is Reverse Logistics
The moment, a product, is returned from the point of consumption by the end user to the point of origin for any reason reverse logistics comes into play.
This is a long process that encounters returns, maintenance, recycling, repairs, & dismantling of products. Reverse logistics, helps the product retain maximum value by cutting down on lost time, improving client service, reducing environmental waste & adding value to corporate citizenship.
The Reverse Logistics process is geared toward avoiding returns, to reduce materials in the forward system & to enhance prospects for reuse & recycling.
Returns are initiated for a multitude of reasons by consumers, retailers, wholesalers & manufacturers. Returns affect the entire logistics chain & need to be dealt with in a systematic manner.
Needless to say, with strict environmental laws manufacturers are under the scanner. Hazardous chemicals, heavy metals are banned from disposal while many items that can be recycled are also on the prohibited list. These telling factors led to a spurt in the area of reverse logistics.
