Our Unique RLP Solution
Logistics is a term that is very much in vogue throughout larger companies worldwide. The ability to minimize inventory, maximize service, and hold shipping costs and overhead in check have most companies searching for the answer to these critical issues.
“Reverse Logistics” however is something almost universally ignored and misunderstood. Most companies lose focus on materials that have fallen through the cracks of the planning, manufacturing, design and distribution process. This “dirty secret”, is usually well hidden within oversized warehouses and shipping docks. Typically only gaining the attention of the CFO, Materials Managers and of course, the Stockholders.
The ability for companies to greatly reduce the negative impact of this “bad” inventory, greatly improving improve turnover, and in turn, ROI performance.
RLP (Reverse Logistics and Planning), stands for all operations management related to the re-use of products and materials. It is "the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient, cost effective flow of raw materials, in-process inventory, finished goods, all the way from the point of consumption to the point of origin or alternate use, for the purpose of recapturing value.
Excess Inventory is a drain on Profitability: Total inventories are usually comprised of a variety of categories, that together drain cash, increase storage requirements, impair the operational effectiveness and lower the ROI of most manufacturing and distribution companies. Beyond the return flow of materials from customers and Distributors, the inventory that accumulates inside most companies is even a greater challenge (by percentage of total inventory). Unneeded inventory ties up cash, creates the need for storage, and capital expansions, and slow turnover inhibits company’s ability to implement product improvements.
