(Cumming, GA.) ReturnMax is now achieving 45% greater recovery values for vendor returns versus other traditional liquidation models. This new reverse logistics company, launched by Joel Holtzman of Excess Technologies, leverages multiple online channels including Amazon, Ebay, and various shopping comparison web sites. The ReturnMax model is designed to maximize vendor returns by leveraging the B2C online channels for returned merchandise from catalog companies, brick & mortar stores, and online retailers.
According to Holtzman, ReturnMax provides an efficient on-ramp to the internet for selling customer returns while gaining higher values over typical bulk liquidation alternatives. By utilizing advanced software, and eliminating several layers of middlemen, such as jobbers, bulk liquidators and consolidators, ReturnMax has perfected a B2C sales model that results in recovery values that can reach 60% of the original product retail price.
ReturnMax provides the client with a full turnkey B2C liquidation solution, including warehouse storage, marketing, fulfillment, payment processing, customer service, and reporting. The company claims that their controlled B2C liquidation model compliments most client’s distribution channels, while growing revenues and customer loyalty. “We specialize in what I refer to as the Last Mile in the product returns life cycle, which is remarketing the returned item,” states Holtzman.
ReturnMax requires no upfront fees from their clients for their services, as they operate on a partnership revenue share model, which provides dual incentives to maximize the return values for the client’s inventory. The best product categories for the ReturnMax model are those that are easily shippable, and preferably recognized brands. Some of the more successful categories have been Apparel & Fashion items, Gifts, Home Goods, Health & Beauty items, Sporting Goods, Toys, Electronics, and Licensed Goods.
ReturnMax is a Georgia based company launched in late 2011, providing turnkey B2C reverse logistic services for consumer returns from catalog companies, brick & mortar stores, and online retailers. The company also has a logistics warehouse located outside Boston MA.
