What is Reverse Logistics?

The definition of reverse logistics has changed over the years along with technology and the ever changing needs of consumers. In short, reverse logistics includes all the operations needed to reuse products and goods for future use. Reverse logistics makes certain that refurbishing and remanufacturing processes are in place to save you money to utilize every ounce of those materials for future use.

Your product’s main goal is to move effectively through the supply chain network to reach your customer or distributor. Reverse logistics comes in after the delivery though, also making sure products aren’t defective upon receipt. If the product is deemed defective, a reverse logistics process begins. This involves testing the goods, taking it apart and figuring out what happened to it in reverse through the supply chain to make sure it doesn’t happen again. This helps you as the consumer to discover what went wrong and how materials can work and be reused.

What’s the Difference Between Forward Logistics and Reverse Logistics?

Forward logistics involves making sure the product gets to the market, otherwise known as the forward supply chain. Reverse logistics, also known as the reverse supply chain, involves taking that product backward to discover if there were any issues with it during delivery. The reverse logistics process allows you to discover if materials can be reused effectively that helps you save money.
