Collection Point for Returning Goods

From the local Italian address to the logistics of returns

The whole process of launching reverse logistics in Italy looks like the following:

Expandeco rents a local address in Italy, which the online shop indicates on the website, in the terms and conditions or in the complaint form.

In case of a problem or dissatisfaction, the customer can send the goods via any courier company or via the Italian post office within the country.

The package is recorded in the internal CRM system. The information is then immediately uploaded to the client interface, where the online shop has full control over returns and the ability to communicate directly with the collection point and manage the collection of shipments according to current needs.

We temporarily store the received packages and send them as a consolidated shipment directly to the online shop’s central warehouse according to an agreed frequency.

The benefits of reverse logistics

Information

A functional infrastructure ensures that you always have an up-to-date overview of the movement of returned goods, enabling you to quickly make the right decisions.

Levelling up to the competition

With our local addresses for receiving returns and complaints, you can gain the long-term trust of international customers at the level of local players.

Improving

Reverse logistics is often a big weakness when expanding online shops. With our infrastructure, you get exceptional quality service anywhere in Europe.

Customer satisfaction

By quickly informing international customers about returns, we also reduce the workload placen on your customer support team.

Speeding up the complaints process

Effective reverse logistics is about the speed of exchanging goods or providing refund. Don’t keep your customers waiting.

Increase conversion

By having a local address, you can increase the credibility of your international business and the number of successfully completed purchases will increase.

Reverse logistics in Italy

The challenge in the Italian market is the speed of delivery to the less accessible south of the country. What can help is the use of local courier services and the developing system of drop-off points, requested by more than 50% of shoppers. Choosing from all available carrier options is also important. It is always necessary to clearly communicate the terms and time of delivery. For up to 100% of customers, the ability to track the movement of orders is a great advantage.  

The National Postal Service does not have particularly positive ratings due to slow and unreliable service. 

For most consumers, free shipping is critical to completing an order. Italian customers check the return or warranty options before they buy and demand a high level of service. The local address is a competitive advantage of the online shop, thanks to which it is possible to optimize costs, but as well the speed and simplicity of solving individual cases.
