Telefonica Panama entrusts CELISTICS with the BuyBack service of used cell phones
CELISTICS will collect the devices at the point of sales in Panama and will manage the restructuring process in order to reintroduce them into the European and Asian markets.
Panama, May 8 of 2017 – CELISTICS, a provider of intelligent logistics and distribution solutions for the consumer technology industry, will provide Telefonica Panama the “BuyBack” service of used cell phones.
With this new service, CELISTICS, a company leader in the distribution of mobile devices, follows global industry trends and generates a circuit that will allow to reintroduce used cell phones into European and Asian markets, prior revision and restructuring. CELISTICS operates in 16 countries in Latin America, and in the following months, it will replicate this proposal in another five countries in the region.
Telefonica Panama offers the consumer the possibility of changing an old device for a new model. To this effect the user must hand over his smart phone and will receive a credit for his premium used device, which will allow him to purchase a new model at a differential price. Implementation of this type of exchange programs is a worldwide trend.
CELISTICS collects the device, recycles it and reintroduces the same in these markets with a competitive price, making it quickly accessible. The advantageous position of the company provides an exponential growth to this new business, due to the coverage, ease and agility to purchase the used devices at the point of sales, and then place them into new markets to be activated once again.
The market of used equipment is a worldwide up-and-coming trend. According to a study by the consulting firm Deloitte, the demand for these devices is expected to jump 50% with a total of 120 million used smart phones in the market. In 2016 this new worldwide trend generated close to 16,800 million dollars. This service is not associated with cost issues, given that in more mature markets such as Germany or Britain used cell phones represent 15% of the total market.
Jose Antonio Rios, CEO of CELISTICS said: "We are honored that Telefonica placed their trust in us by allowing us to implement our “BuyBack” service in Panama. We are an innovative company very much in tune with our client’s plans and the trends of the mobile industry. This is a new experience and we will do it together, as members of the mobile ecosystem, bringing new technologies closer to the users.”

Cell phones have a high replacement rate and by combining Telefonica Movil’s point of sales with our expertise in national logistics, we can assure the operator the collection and distribution of mobile devices through our integrated solution,” added Kennett Meighan, Country Manager CENAM of CELISTICS.
