Coresight Research x Newmine: Tackling Returns Ahead of Holiday 2021—Technology-Driven Strategies To Protect the Bottom Line

What's Inside

On June 29, 2021, Coresight Research hosted a panel discussion with technology innovator Newmine, to discuss how e-commerce retailers can address the surge in product returns in the aftermath of 2020’s e-commerce boom.

In this report, we present three key insights from the event:

  • Returns have recently become a key focus for e-commerce retailers: According to the NRF (National Retail Federation), the US returns rate for online purchases ballooned to 18.1% in 2020, far above the overall retail industry rate of 10.6%.
  • E-commerce retailers are investing in new technologies such as augmented reality (AR) to guide consumer expectations and minimize returns.
  • As consumers become more environmentally-conscious, retailers have an additional incentive to improve their reverse logistics.
