Promising Areas for Future Research on Reverse Logistics: an exploratory study
AbstractDuring the early nineties, the Council of Logistics Management started publishing studieswhere Reverse Logistics was recognized as being relevant both for business and society (Stock,1992). Other studies followed stressing the opportunities on reuse and recycling (Kopicki etal., 1993), discussing marketing aspects (Kostecki, 1998) and reported on the U.S. experience(Rogers and Tibben-Lembke, 1999). In Europe, an inter-university EU sponsored projectcalled RevLog had served as one of the motors for European Research on Reverse Logistics.For the last 5 years, researchers associated with RevLog have co-authored more than 100papers on the subject (see Dekker et al., 2003). Very recently, the RevLog group organizeda meeting to identify ?Promising Areas for Future Research on Reverse Logistics.? In thispaper we report the outcome of such meeting.
