Consumers returned an estimated 16.6% of retail sales in 2021; a value of $761 Billion. As eCommerce sales continue to rise, evolving omnichannel operations are creating increased complexity in the retail supply chain.
To explore this topic further, the Kansas City CSCMP Roundtable is thrilled to host Tony Sciarrotta, Executive Director of The Reverse Logistics Association, on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 18, 2022. Tony’s presentation will dive into trends, solutions and the overall impact returns are having on the growing eCommerce industry, the economy, and the planet. We will also hear from a Kansas City-based retailer on their company’s approach to returns and lessons learned. We will announce this guest speaker in the coming weeks.
