Abstract: Reverse Logistics and the management of returned or used merchandise is a growing problem among manufacturers today. In this study we begin by presenting the nature and magnitude of the reverse logistics problem in the industry and a literature survey of the previous research in this area. Reverse Logistics deals with the processes associated with the reverse stream from users/owners to re-users. This paper provides content analysis of scientific literature on reverse logistics. Over thirty articles are included. In addition, we give an overview of particular issues, which we rink with strategies, practices and thus directions for future research.
