The Business Case for Prioritizing Reverse Logistics featuring Tony Sciarrotta

Supply Chain Now

May 23, 2023

Earlier this year, the Reverse Logistics Association held their 19th Annual Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was their biggest event yet, with over 350 member companies and over 800 people registered for the event, which featured a pitch competition, awards ceremony, top notch content, and – of course – plenty of networking time.

Tony Sciarrotta has been the Executive Director of the Reverse Logistics Association since 2016 and is a return guest and co-host in the Supply Chain Now Reverse Logistics Series. Tony has also held a variety of sales and marketing positions in the consumer electronics industry, including President of Reverse IT Sales & Consulting and 25 years at Philips Consumer Lifestyle.

In this episode, Tony joins host Scott Luton to share his main takeaways from the event and to shine the spotlight on top trends in reverse logistics:

• How new software is automating the business decisions about whether each return should be liquidated, resold into the secondary market, or sold via a special business channel

• Why he is challenging business leaders to prioritize reverse logistics by appointing someone at the VP or even the C-level to own their management

• What he is doing – and who the RLA is partnering with – to increase the reverse talent pipeline
