1. Investigation into the high return rates associated with same-day and first-class delivery ship modes is essential. Understanding the reasons behind these returns—product quality, logistics issues, or packaging concerns—can provide valuable insights for improvement.
2. Timely delivery not only enhances customer retention but also reduces costs associated with delayed shipments. Optimal shipment modes should be explored for future deliveries to ensure orders are received promptly, fostering stronger customer relationships.
