The normal logistics of a manufacturer’s products is to move in the direction of distributors and consumers. “Reverse logistics”, on the other hand, refers to products and materials that move in the opposite direction. For example, a defective electronic product may be returned from the consumer back to the distributor or manufacturer, where it would have to be tested, dismantled, disposed of or repaired.
How does your company manage its reverse logistics burden? Do you have procedures in place to responsibly recycle the e-waste? E-waste, or the discarding of obsolete electronics, has skyrocketed and is estimated to exceed 50 million tons worldwide.
Unfortunately, a large percentage of this e-waste ends up in landfills. While it contains toxic chemicals and harmful substances that damage the environment, it also contains valuable materials that could be recovered from the product, reused, recycled properly, and even used to manufacture new products.
