What activities involve in Reverse Logistics to improve the Supply Chain Management Operations?

What activities can we consider in Reverse Logistics process to improve the Supply Chain operations, specifically in food sector.

The first paper talks about maufacturing industries, but includes also food and beverage processing.

the 2nd paper is about reverse logisitics in greece considering food quality and safety as well as traceability: Improvement of supply chain services in the Greek agrifood sector: Panousopoulou, P., Papadopoulou, E.M., Manthou, V., Vlachopoulou, M. 2010: Business Transformation through Innovation and Knowledge Management: An Academic Perspective – Proceedings of the 14th International Business Information Management Association Conference, IBIMA 2010

Reusable transportation items management: A case study

Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology

Reverse logistics can include a multiplicity of actions, from returning goods from a consumer to the retailer or provider, receiving customer service or  having field service take place to repair or fix the item in question, or having the product sent to a third party for repair or replacement.  The fact is that reverse logistics includes virtually all of these services, and we counsel a broad perspective should be taken to not let this area be a burden to the business. The goal is to make certain the least damage is done to the firms brand and reputation, and to handle the process so it results in a positive rather than a negative impression.  A system of disposition management is required to handle such situations in an effective and rewarding manner, with the understanding that reverse logistics is far different than forward logistics. In the return situation, there must be a convenient point of collection for receiving the goods or to remove these goods from the supply chain.  This process step can require inspection, re-packaging, storage, and salvage of any residual value that might exist; and the development of a transportation mode that is compatible with the existing forward system of supply

It can be handled effectively through apps now a days. the organization should be more sensitive on brand and reputation.

One of the best answers you can find in SCOR guides. Many activities connected with the reverse flow management are introduced there.

Reverse Logistics is  gaining importance in Supply chain operations now . Reverse logistics means the process of getting the physical goods back from the point of consumption , reasons could be end of the life cycle , excess product , damage , wrong supplies. And a reverse logistics chain involves the following activities – Acquisition , Grading , Reprocessing  and redistribution . The main objective of the Supply chain are – Customer satisfaction  and minimizing the erosion of corporate revenue . So to achieve the above a company need to have a effective reverse logistics process.

All activities are involved. we must think about reverse logistics in the step of product and packaging conception.

Decision making in reverse logistics using system dynamics

Reverse logistics is a modern field of consideration, research and study, providing helpful information on the operation of the closed-loop supply chain. Although the starting point of this field is traced back to the early 90s, no standard method has been suggested, neither prevailed. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new approach on the study of reverse logistics. It is actually a review on how System Dynamics (SD) can be a helpful tool when it is used in the reverse logistics field. The paper explains the basic theory of the system modeling and next it utilizes the reverse logistics model. Finally, an illustrative example shows how SD modeling can be used to produce a powerful long-term decision-making tool.

Analysis of Reverse Logistics Operations for a Computer Company

As reverse logistics is a relatively new field in supply chain management, especially in Asia, a detailed study is conducted to understand the status of companies practicing reverse logistics to support their Asia Pacific operations. This paper discusses an empirical examination of a company performing reverse logistics in Asia with Singapore being the coordination hub with the United States (US). Data on the transaction volumes and other material information are collected over a period of two years to understand the behaviour and trends of reverse logistics in this company. Statistical tools such as serial correlation, seasonality and trend analysis are performed on the data to understand their behaviour and its managerial implication. The study has shown that there is an upward trend for the return volume and how financial closing has an impact to the return volumes.

Designing contracts for a closed-loop supply chain under information asymmetry

This paper studies the problem of designing contracts in a closed-loop supply chain when the cost of collection effort is the retailers private information. We investigate four cases: two contracts (a two-part nonlinear contract and a collection effort requirement contract), each under complete information and asymmetric information. We derive the manufacturers optimal contracts for all four cases and analyze the impact of information on the equilibrium results of supply chain members.
