Roughly three out of ten online purchases are eventually returned. To thrive in the new digital market, online stores have adapted to offer new and more flexible return policies to their customers. Therefore, it is no surprise that 68% of global retailers see return management as a key challenge facing warehouses today. Retail analysts at the IHL Group estimate consumers return as much as $642.2 billion worth of inventory, and with every passing second, unprocessed returned items depreciate in value, lowering company profits.
