Abstract
Reverse logistics has been seen as a necessary cost of business, but more
companies are seeing it as a core strategic activity. Every firm needs to find
more efficicient ways of reclaiming, redistributing, and disposing returns. For
a fast growing industry, however, it is difficult to focus on structuring internal
processes for reverse logistics because its emphasis is always on time to
market and growing sales. In order to capture the most updated trend in the
field of reverse logistics, this paper describes best practices of reverse
logistics in hi-tech industry and identifies barriers in implementing those
practices. the focus areas of the benchmarking survey are outsourcing of the
logistics function, organization of the logistics function, return management,
and sustainability-green issue. Based on the survey results, we provide an
insight for capturing these trends and leveraging them as a strategic core
competency for this industry.
