June 01, 2012

As a global leader in supply chain logistics, UPS has a long history of working with high-tech companies, from small component suppliers to global finished-goods powerhouses. With so much visibility into this market, we’ve noticed that companies have varying degrees of success managing reverse logistics—as well as varying degrees of missed opportunities when not paying attention to this part of the total supply chain.

In our experiences, reverse logistics is one of the most often overlooked elements of the complete operations cycle. These experiences and observations are precisely why we commissioned this paper: we want to highlight how high-tech companies can realize near- and long-term benefits by taking control of their reverse logistics supply chain and making improvements – no matter how small.
