UPS Longitudes | Return to Sender: Navigating Reverse Logistics

Multimedia with summary

In a traditional linear economy, we make goods, use them and dispose them. In a circular economy, by contrast, the end of a product’s life can be an opportunity for new value creation. But for the circular economy to work, materials must be in the right place at the right time.

As companies continue setting ambitious goals to advance circular strategies, they look to partners like UPS to help make reverse logistics seamless — whether reclaiming products for their “next life,” helping consumers recycle goods or packaging and collecting items for refurbishment for future use.
