Pulse Services

Pulse Forward + Reverse Logistics

With new technologies coming to market every day, more consumers and businesses purchase products from online suppliers expecting same or next day delivery. To help your business maximize product profitability and reduce costs, we analyze every part of the process from the manufacturer to customer, and we develop a strategic and highly efficient forward chain management strategy to ensure your products are delivered on time and to the correct destination.

When it comes to Reverse Logistics, we have a singular focus – to optimize the complete return life cycle of a product. Our team works to increase product ROI by monitoring for product return trends and defects, determining which products can be resold at market value, and identifying alternative market solutions. At Pulse, our Forward and Reverse Logistics services are located at one facility. We handle the entire process from making minor repairs to sending out to a subcontractor or returning the product to the manufacturer. In addition, professional buyers can seamlessly purchase products from a wide range of categories from our interactive and digital marketplace. Our system increases value recovery, eliminates costly handoffs, and decreases inventory processing time.
