Topic of the Challenge:

Insight to avoid unnecessary returns

Transportation of goods is a major contributor to carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. In these days of e-commerce increasing exponentially this makes the retail industry an important and growing player. These harmful emissions can be reduced in many ways but one way to do it is by reducing the huge number of returned purchases, something that in addition to positive effects on the environment also affects companies profitability and bottom line. 

We plan to analyse the data from Stadium to create a holistic understanding of reasons for which the goods are returned and provide analytical insight to avoid unnecessary returns.
