Hey Bill, what does "Reverse Logistics" mean? (the tag you added to this great article)

Chunk O' Change

Hi Davison. Great question! When a product is no longer in demand by consumers or it is customer-returned merchandise, a retailer may choose to liquidate this inventory. Most often, the the retailer returns this inventory to the manufacturer or a reverse logistics processor. This inventory can then be scrapped, refurbished, sold off-price or sold to a closeout broker. This is often called the reverse-logistics industry because the product flows from the consumer through the retailer and back into wholesale, which is the reverse path of typical A-stock products.
