    What is Reverse Logistics

    Reverse Logistics describes the logistics process in a circular economy. It is the process in the supply chain that deals with the return of any supplied goods. This includes any product returned by the end-user, inward disposal of packaging material, or recycling of the sold product. The importance of Reverse Logistics has changed due to the rise of e-commerce and the high volume of returned goods. Therefore, Reverse Logistics is interesting for companies like DB Schenker.

    Returns, Remanufacturing, Refurbishing, Packaging, Unsold goods, End-of-life, Rentals & Leasing or Repairs & Maintenance.

    What is the Reverse Logistics Association?

    Established in 2002, the RLA is the only authoritative body for best practices related to reverse logistics. The RLA is a member-driven, global trade association for the returns and reverse industry.
