How We Help: Retailers
For many big box retailers, quality control can be a constant challenge. When receiving a high volume of large orders, a certain number of damaged or defective shipments is inevitable. Of course, putting substandard products on the sales floor is not an option. Shoppers expect and deserve to receive only the best merchandise. Even one bad experience can cause them to explore alternative retail options.
Should I Send Defective Goods Back to the Warehouse?
Whenever a store manager discovers a defective shipment, he or she must determine whether it makes sense to return the merchandise to the warehouse, distribution center or in the case of a direct purchase, the manufacturer. Unfortunately, this takes time, and there is no guarantee replacement goods will be available for immediate shipment. In the meantime, the store will experience lost sales and revenues resulting from empty shelves.
What to Do When Defective Goods Arrive at Your Retail Store
If you’re a store manager, there’s a better, faster, more cost-effective alternative to sending a defective shipment back to the warehouse or manufacturer. Quality Corrections and Inspections, a U.S.-based high-volume rework company founded in 1986, can fix the mistakes of others quickly and efficiency. We can restore damaged apparel, footwear, accessories and various types of consumer goods to their original condition. You will receive top-quality, salable merchandise that will meet your customers’ high expectations and contribute to your store’s profitability.

How We Help: Quality Control Officers
As a quality control or corrections officer, it is your job to ensure the goods that leave your facility meet your company’s quality standards. Even one defective or damaged product has the potential to reflect badly on your organization — and your department. Depending on the industry, selling goods of inferior quality could also result in regulatory compliance violations that can have severe financial and reputation implications for your company.
How to Handle Defective Shipments as a Quality Corrections Officer
Receiving a shipment of defective products from a manufacturer can pose quite a dilemma for a quality corrections officer. Shipping them back for repair or replacement takes time and costs a lot of money — especially with imported goods not meeting quality standards. Trying to fix the problem in-house requires additional time, labor and resources that your company may not have, depending on the severity and extent of the problem.
