Does your reverse logistics cycle fit your customers’ needs? Customers rely on you for fast, comprehensive computer and electronics repair to keep their daily lives moving.
But what happens if you don’t have the parts you need? Or if a piece of equipment takes longer than expected to arrive in your repair facility? Or a repaired unit has to wait and wait for courier service?
Logistics mishaps like these can damage your brand, and cost your customers valuable time and productivity. Are you confident your reverse logistics provider understands your business and has the capabilities to ensure your success?
Our whitepaper provides an in-depth overview of today’s computer and tech repair industry, along with guidance in building a comprehensive reverse logistics strategy. This whitepaper provides insights on key logistics-related considerations including:
- Single source/Comprehensive Solution Provider. Why enlist multiple logistics companies when you can have all your needs met by a single provider? Choose a company that can support your broad portfolio of services. This includes a good understanding of what is involved in shipping computers and electronics. Not only seamless equipment retrievals and returns, but order management, inventory management, warehousing, kitting, picking, labeling/shipment preparation, transportation, delivery, and all backend functions including recordkeeping and compliance mandates.
- Flexibility and Service Options. Choose a logistics provider that can accommodate your preferred pickup schedule, rather than one that forces you to adapt to its limitations. This includes courier services that allow options for customers in need of multiple daily pickups, late day/evening pickups, or access to convenient storefront locations, at which broken equipment can be dropped off.
- Delivery Guarantees. What happens to computers and electronic repairs once they are picked up? Are they forced to sit idle in a distribution center, or transferred multiple times while in-transit? A reputable logistics provider will keep your shipments moving, and guarantee delivery within a specified time frame. This includes services ranging from same-day courier, to overnight service with end-delivery as early as 9am, to ground options for less-urgent delivery needs.
- Expedited Services. Expedited service, including express delivery, has become an increasingly attractive solution for ensuring guaranteed deliveries of computer and office equipment, especially for repairs that are highly-time sensitive. An expedited solution can be customized to meet a repair facility’s specific needs, with guaranteed delivery times, and the highest levels of customer service.
