For major manufacturers, returning used and leased assets is a huge business
Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 2, 2008
Fortigo Inc., logistics cost management (LCM) software experts, and CEVA Logistics (CEVA), announce the introduction of an industry-first solution for reverse logistics and asset recovery that automates, optimizes, and audits the process of returning used and leased assets.
"For major manufacturers, returning used and leased assets is a huge business," explained Dr. George Kontoravdis, Fortigo president. "Reverse logistics involves billions of dollars and precise coordination between many different business partners, including carriers, distribution centers, and refurbishment centers. Providing a way to automate this process and eliminate costs has a measurable impact on the bottom line."
"We are offering the first supply chain solution optimized for reverse logistics," says Michael Lloyd, CEVA's senior logistics manager. "The asset recovery industry has traditionally been under-served with limited visibility, incomplete accounting of returned items, and no record of on-time performance. CEVA is changing all that today. ATOMS, our new solution powered by Fortigo, allows instant reconciliation of used assets. Extending this capability to major manufacturers often adds up to millions of dollars in savings."
