Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) January 30, 2007
John Mehrmann, a leading authority and industry expert, will present "Evolve or Become Extinct, A Reverse Logistics Model to Deliver Expanded Shareholder Value."
In the evolution of Supply Chain Management Services and Solutions, Reverse Logistics evolved from a requirement for merely managing returns into a competitive advantage for Retail, OEMs and Branded companies that manage the process wisely. Reverse Logistics has become a keystone for balancing customer satisfaction, supply demand responsiveness and bottom line performance. Properly managing Reverse Logistics and the Supply Chain Solutions can make or break the financial stability of an organization.
"In the Supply Chain you are either the one driving the truck, the one pumping the gas or the one paying the other two. The simple goal is to know what needs to be moved and to do it less," said John Mehrmann.
John Mehrmann has more than 20 years of management experience that spans logistics, operations, e-commerce, finance, customer relations, marketing, training and consulting. Prior to his role of Regional Director at DEX, he worked for Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc, Toshiba Imaging Systems Division, Toshiba America Consumer Products and SatisFusion.

At the Reverse Logistics Trade Show (RLTS) Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, Third Party Service Providers (3PSPs) will demonstrate Reverse Logistics services and solutions on a global basis to OEMs, Retailers and Branded companies.
Reverse supply chain providers working independently have difficulty to achieve and demonstrate value. Technology is essential to leverage integration and expedite intelligent decisions with multiple tiered operators. Collaboration is required to provide Best Practices, increase revenue, reduce expense and optimize capital.
"In Service, to be competitive is to be the first to provide the services that would otherwise put you out of business. If you can do this, you will place your competitors out of business, or at least have them working for you," said John Mehrmann.

"Industry Overview Size and Forecast", by Gailen Vick, President & CEO of Reverse Logistics Trends, Inc
