UPS predicting record “National Returns Day”

UPS has announced that its is expecting 1.4m returns on “National Returns Day” (3 January).

In a statement issued yesterday (27 December), UPS said that this would be a fifth consecutive annual record, up 8% from the previous year. The company also reported that in December, more than 1m returns occurred each day before Christmas.

“A customer-friendly returns program is now an essential part of any successful e-commerce program, and UPS continues to expand its suite of innovative solutions to help shippers. This season, UPS added Returns Manager, a free platform that allows e-commerce merchants to customize return shipments according to their e-tailer policy.”

UPS added: “The returns delivered in 2017 are part of the 750 million packages UPS is projected to deliver between Thanksgiving and New Year Eve, a nearly 40 million increase from last year.”
