Abstract

Nowadays, firms incorporate reverse flow to their systems because of some reasons such as economic and ecologic reasons, regulations from government, social responsibilities. These firms face to some problems such as designing efficient reverse logistics network and managing the reverse flow of materials, components or products. A generic reverse logistics network includes collecting the cores from customers, stocking, reprocessing and redistributing activities. In this paper, studies about logistics network design and modeling for product recovery are reviewed, classified and the main characteristics of them are tried to analyze.
