Reverse logistics describes the process of products and equipment being sent from end users back to the manufacturers or another external entity. In some cases, this process results in the manufacturer adding further value to those products, but it can also be used as a form of equipment disposal. As an essential element in waste management, reverse logistics leads to reuse and recycling, providing the most efficient solution regarding environmental concerns.
As a leading specialist logistics company, Rhenus High Tech UK provides value-added, end-to-end services which support the clients’ supply chain requirements and assists with meeting environmental regulations. We work hand in hand with our clients through the process of reverse logistics, seeking first to understand their needs so we can lay out the best plan of the operation for our team.
