Damon Intelligent Logistics Solution is Specially designed for the Shoes and Clothing Return Business

All the time, every year 618 has allowed countless enterprises to withstand the logistics test of the great promotion peak. However, after the carnival, the return boom also followed. Among them, as an important category in the mid-year promotion, the return rate of shoes and clothing is higher than that of other industries, resulting in a further surge in reverse logistics processing pressure in the warehouse, which directly affects the efficiency of reclassifying goods and inventory turnover, and brings huge challenges to the operation and management of shoe and clothing logistics warehouses.


In recent years, as the penetration of e-commerce channels continues to deepen, the commitment of "No Reason to Return or Change Goods" is regarded as an important means to increase consumer stickiness and increase turnover by shoe and apparel companies.
