Efficient reconditioning makes articles as good as new again

The reconditioning of returned articles to render them ready for sale can encompass repackaging, or everything up to the correction of defects. Our trained employees take care of this work in returns management. They check your articles for functionality and identify frauds.

Furthermore, we train our employees in special programs that help ensure they meet all product-specific requirements in reconditioning - error-free and down to the very last detail. This is how we speed up direct re-introduction into the dispatch process. Also included in our range is the disposal of defective goods as well as recycling the packaging materials.

Our service range includes the generation of customer credit notes within 24 hours of goods inspection. If required, we can also trigger replacement deliveries. You can also rely on us to evaluate your customers' comments on the return documents.

At all stages in returns management, we apply extensive automation and the latest technologies. Our experts can cooperate with you to develop strategies to simplify your returns processing and therefore help reduce your returns quota.
