Newmine Tops Reverse Logistics Association’s Start Up Pitch Contest
Returns reduction tech company wins the Judges Award
SOUTHBOROUGH, MA – February 28, 2023— The Reverse Logistics Association (RLA), the global voice of the returns and reverse logistics industry, voted Newmine, the leader in returns reduction and returns intelligence technology, winner of its first ever Start Up Pitch Contest. Newmine won over five other firms that address reverse logistics challenges including self-service returns, damaged returns or policy abuse and re-processing goods at warehouse on digital returns.
The competition, held at RLA’s annual conference in Las Vegas, February 7-9, involved each startup having seven minutes to ‘pitch’ its solution in front of five esteemed judges and more than 750 attendees. Two awards were given – The Judges Award, which Newmine won, and the Audience Award. The company was presented a trophy and will be included in an exclusive interview with RLA’s RL Magazine.
“This was a very close race, with all of the entrants presenting great pitches that really try to help our members and others improve their reverse logistics challenges. We’re delighted with the how the process unfolded and congratulate Newmine for its win,” said Tony Sciarrotta, Executive Director of RLA.
In addition to Newmine, the contestants for the honor included Boomerang, Carolina Sisters, Pollen Returns, Returns Worldwide and Tompkins Robotics.
“The other solution providers contending for this award gave great presentations and I thank them for the work they’re doing to bring new efficiencies and added performance to the supply chain. I’m proud that our effort was rewarded – it validates the Newmine team’s effort to drive innovation in the returns space,” said Navjit Bhasin, Founder & CEO of Newmine.
