Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) January 23, 2008
Two respected names in the industry will appear on stage at the Reverse Logistics Trade Show and Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
John Mehrmann is well known for articles that have been featured in Reverse Logistics Magazine, including A Pragmatic Approach to Partners, Seeing Green at the End of the Line, and the Reverse Logistics Financial Model. John Mehrmann is also co-author of The Trusted Advocate, with Mitchell Simon. John lends more than 22 years of industry knowledge to the advancement of logistics and supply chain services. As a featured speaker at RLTS, John will present Create Your Reverse Logistics Financial Model.
"It is a tremendous honor to be invited back to speak at the Reverse Logistics Trade Show and Conference," said John Mehrmann. "The strategic financial impact of reverse logistics is just beginning to receive the recognition that it deserves. Understanding and controlling this process in the product lifecycle can be the difference between profit and extinction."
Michael Moore will be featured on the panel, Using Reverse Logistics to Enhance Customer Service and Competitive Performance. Michael Moore has more than 22 years of experience in the technology industry. Michael holds a Bachelor of Science degree for Engineering from DeVry Institute, and an MBA in Marketing from California Lutheran University. Always an audience favorite, Michael Moore speaks with a calm passion and educated authority on all aspects of logistics and supply chain services.
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.
"RLTS is a rich opportunity for OEM's and Branded Companies to identify future service partners. There is no other opportunity like this for 3PSP's to sit down face-to-face with key strategic decision makers," said Michael Moore.
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.
