Company Mission

We are a trade association focused on Third Party Service Providers to whom OEMs, ODMs, Branded and Retail companies outsource. The Reverse Logistics Association monitors thousands of 3PSPs worldwide who are providing Aftermarket Supply Chain services, while supporting the outsourcing needs of OEM, ODM, Branded and Retail companies.

Our mission is to educate and inform Reverse Logistics professionals around the world. RLA focuses on all industries in the reverse logistics process. No matter what industry, High Tech, Automotive, Medical/Pharmaceutical, Publishing, Apparel, or Consumer, our goal is to provide RL process knowledge to all industries. We want to educate everyone about the reverse logistics processes that are common to all industries. We have been and will continue to provide our services at a moderate price to our members.

Managing the latest information in repair, customer service, parts management, end-of-life manufacturing, returns processing and order fulfillment (just to name a few) can be a little intimidating, to say the least. Yet, that is exactly what the Reverse Logistics Association provides with our membership services. We serve manufacturers and retailers in a variety of settings while offering ongoing updates on market trends, mergers and acquisitions and potential outsourcing opportunities to Third Party Service Providers. We have gained the attention of 3PLs like FedEx, DHL, USPS and UPS. Third Party Service Providers like Teleplan, Foxconn, Solectron, Canon, Sony and Jabil, along with small service providers have found that the RLA resources help advertise their services. OEMs like Microsoft, HP, Palm and Sony, along with Retailers like Wal-Mart Canadian Tire, Tesco and Best Buy, all participate at our events. Our online RL Magazine and Weekly News Clippings help OEM, Branded and Retail companies find service partners that were unknown to them.
