How Do We Deliver The Return Service. 
Triage and agility are words that convey our flagship service. Performing expert triage on returned purchases is the critical step in maximising the available value extracted from each one. 
Our on-boarding teams are seasoned, hands-on professionals, versed in applying the reverse global logistics, Customs formalities and technologies involved in retrieving and returning purchases.   
For purchases that must be returned; those experts analyse and propose reversed solutions, customised to extract maximum convenience and financial recovery for retailers and consumers. We work with their staff to on-board and implement the rules and guidelines for handling their returned purchases.  
These guidelines include how items are inspected, graded for quality and condition, deciding if they are; resold, recycled, restocked, refunded, donated, or disposed of. 
Returns Are Simple For Consumers. 
Routed by their user-generated delivery/tracking labels, returned items arrive at our purpose-built facility. Their barcode labels are; scanned, confirmed, imaged, graded, recorded, and routed to their final area for disposition. 
The return process is a streamlined set of options matching the retailer's guidelines. Ship Cycle uses the configuration to outsource the intensive process of efficiently recovering their financial value for retailers, make informed refunding decisions, recycling returned purchases through 3rd party webstores and marketplaces.
