Used vehicle parts are industrially reprocessed and returned to the quality of a new part (remanufacturing). On a global scale, that saves 85 percent of the raw materials and 55 percent of the energy consumed.
A user-friendly resend portal implements a transparent, agile and controlled return process. In the course of this, the decision is made whether a used part is to be remanufactured, recycled, or removed and properly disposed of.
Encory provides BMW Group dealers with a reliable supply of genuine used parts and, with attractive pricing, grants them an additional way to enhance customer loyalty (reuse).
Shape the circular economy of the future with success.
