Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
Inmar, a company that operates intelligent commerce networks, today announced that Steve Dollase, president, Inmar Supply Chain Network, will join industry leaders in a panel discussion of the growth of secondary markets in the changing retail economy. The discussion will take place at 9:00 a.m. on May 4 at the 2015 WERC Annual Conference in Orlando, sponsored by the Warehousing Education and Research Council.
“Understanding the Secondary Market” will explore how the secondary market has become a significant portion of domestic economic activity in the U.S., allowing recovery and resale of excess inventory, returns, refurbished product or other assets. This session will illustrate both the magnitude and value of the U.S. secondary market.
“Secondary markets are an outstanding means of retaining value on returned product and provide a important resource for keeping viable product out of landfills,” says Dollase. “In this evolving landscape of increasingly competitive returns policies and the added dynamic of online sales, secondary markets are increasingly valuable.”
Inmar connects secondary market merchandisers to thousands of truckloads of product each year via its returns management programs with major retailers, through direct sales to buyers and through Inmar Remarketplace.com, a leading auction site providing secondary market buyers access to quality product.
The annual WERC Conference offers more than 80 educational sessions, focused peer-to-peer discussions, action-packed facility tours, unrivaled networking opportunities and the WIRE Trade Show for solutions and partnership building.
