Reverse Logistics

"Close Looped" Reverse Logistics 

The circular economy is an increasingly pressing issue all over the world. Every business today needs to consider how they can contribute to a more sustainable production and consumption model in which raw materials are kept longer in production cycles and can be used repeatedly, therefore generating much less waste.

Our reverse logistics and product take-back solution focuses on a circular approach involving the collection of goods, transportation to a given location, and sorting prior to remanufacturing, refurbishing, reuse, upcycling, recycling, donation or disposal. It plays an important role in the process of companies aiming to transition to a closed-looped operation, and optimize resource utilization to improve their profitability.

How Product Take-Back WORKS?

Cannibalization

Recovering reusable parts from used products in order to facilitate remanufacturing or refurbishing activities.

Recycling
