HomeDirectUSA, a U.S. provider of white-glove home delivery service for large consumer goods, has added a new service option for returned items. Called Direct Liquidation, the service efficiently manages the e-commerce sale of returned items. This new option is an enhancement of the company's Direct Recovery reverse logistics service.
Retailers of large consumer goods haven't had many good options for dealing with product returns, which are a significant expense for home delivery services. By leveraging its transportation and distribution center network, HomeDirectUSA can help customers generate new revenue or efficiently dispose of returned items that have previously been a costly liability.
This latest reverse logistics service is designed for the special needs of large consumer goods retailers, including consolidation and repair/restoration services. With Direct Liquidation, retailers are relieved of complex and expensive returns management. Instead, HomeDirectUSA takes responsibility for items the moment they are rejected at the home delivery site.
Products are returned via HomeDirectUSA's nationwide transportation network to its central Indianapolis returns processing center. Once received at the center, returns enter a process designed to maximize revenue. Returned goods are inspected and their condition is reported to customers, who then decide whether to refurbish and return to inventory; consolidate with other returns for liquidation; or offer for e-commerce sale—the new Direct Liquidation option. Under any of these scenarios, HomeDirectUSA manages the entire process for its customers. HomeDirectUSA then ensures that the items sell at the best possible price and handles all the necessary activity including delivery to buyers and processing of payments.
