Whew! A peak season has passed. But now you walk into your Distribution Center and realize your hardworking team simply can’t catch up. Piles of returned items need to be inspected, refolded, and repackaged. You had a huge influx of product to meet the season’s demand, and your team is up to their eyeballs in unsold goods.
There are 4 issues here:
- The product is not out for sale and, therefore, not earning revenue.
- The apparel/merchandise is nearly past its seasonality. It needs to be sold soon!
- You want to sell this product at full price, not discounted as clearance items.
- The next peak season is just around the corner, and you need the space.
RETURNS PROCESSING – The bottom line:
Seasonal merchandise needs to get back on the shelves ASAP. Unsold goods take up precious space and don’t bring “ka-ching” – the revenue your company is looking for.
Here’s one option…
You could instruct your staff to prioritize and address the many different functions involved in processing returns: organizing, inspecting, refolding, repackaging and, if necessary, relabeling. However, you don’t want to pay overtime and lose your shirt. And you don’t want to pull employees off critical, time-sensitive tasks.
