The growing amount of returns in e-commerce business causes an increasing interest in return sortation. Over the years returns have become one of the largest challenges in e-commerce logistics. When looking at e-commerce statistics, 30% of online sales is returned, an enormous percentage when compared to the 8.9% returns in brick-and-mortar stores. Often returns are sorted and sealed manually. By implementing a sorter that automatically sorts the items per SKU, these return items can be restocked and resold much faster.
