Agility: Agility’s story parallels the rise of emerging markets in the global economy.  The company got its start as a local warehousing provider in Kuwait and grew to become one of the largest logistics company in the Middle East.  It acquired more than 40 logistics brands around the world, investing billions to build a global network with a strong footprint in emerging markets.  Today, Agility is one of the world’s largest integrated logistics providers with more than 20,000 employees and operations in 100 countries.  Agility has two main lines of business.  Through their Global Integrated Logistics (GIL) business, they work with companies in diverse industries and markets to move, manage, and distribute the goods that underpin global commerce. Through their Infrastructure portfolio of companies, they provide logistics-related services in emerging markets that facilitate trade and create access to new opportunities.  After goods arrive at the warehouse, Agility takes orders from the customer, processes them, then picks and packs goods for delivery.  Agility systems provide order visibility and product tracking.  Agility uses a dedicated fleet and preferred vendors to ensure reliable delivery and works with Agility branch offices to deliver to remote retail locations across the Indonesian archipelago. The customer relies on Agility to reduce its environmental impact by reusing cartons, a program being extended to include collection and reuse of cartons from retail outlets.  Agility handles the customer’s reverse logistics, managing the collection and return of any defective or recalled goods.​

GENCO: Moving products quickly through the reverse logistics process is a complex challenge that, when not managed well, can erode the relationship between retailers and their vendors. The rules for product disposition and credits vary by vendor, product and product condition. Even the rules have exceptions.  GENCO streamlines the returns process by working with you to clearly define the business rules for product disposition and credits, and programming them into their R-Log software.  When products arrive at the return center, they inspect them to identify and eliminate exceptions before products are returned to vendors.  Since opening their doors in 1898, GENCO has forged a record of performance, innovation and customer service that is second to none.  When it comes to selecting a third party logistics (3PL) provider to perform standard supply chain services, you have many choices.  GENCO can certainly be a company you turn to for such services.  Managing potentially thousands of vendors and hundreds of thousands of returns, companies face a big challenge in optimizing recovery and clearing space of inventory.  You need an experienced partner that knows the ins and outs of reverse logistics, provides streamlined services and custom solutions, and generates maximum recovery.  GENCO is the forefather of reverse logistics, having created automated processes to efficiently process returned products. GENCO’s reverse logistics expertise lets you focus on your core competencies.
