Definition Reverse Logistics. Description.

Reverse Logistics is a supply chain that is dedicated to the reverse flow of products and materials for returns, repair, remanufacture, and/or recycling.

It is the logistics process of removing new or used products from their initial point in a supply chain, such as returns from consumers, over stocked inventory, or outdated merchandise and redistributing them using disposition management rules that will result in maximized value at the end of the items original useful life. A reverse logistics operation is considerably different from forward logistics. It must establish convenient collection points to receive the used goods from the final customer or remove assets from the supply chain so that more efficient use of inventory / material overall can be achieved.
