If your business ships goods to customers, retailers, or dealers, it’s inevitable that a certain percentage of those goods are going to be returned. Managing these returns can take time, money, and resources away from your core business. We specialize in providing reverse logistics solutions. We currently manage a complex product returns program which involves thousands of automobile dealerships and retailers from around the country, hundreds of thousands of SKU’s, and dozens of possible sorts.



  • Minimize waste and maximize product recovery: We’ll inspect, sort, recover, and repack all usable product, maximizing the value of your assets.
  • Improve product controls: We’ll provide you with product analysis tools to help you better understand why products are getting returned and how you can reduce your returns rate.
  • Reduce costs: We already have the facilities, equipment, and experienced staff. Contract with NorthGate to manage your product returns program and you can realize considerable savings.
  • Improve customer satisfaction: We can ensure smooth, efficient management of your returns program, and improve customer satisfaction.
