Reverse Supply Chain Management ‘Closes the Loop’ on Waste

The race to close the loop and create a zero-emissions supply chain is on. Andrew Burger writes for Triple Pundit about how “reverse” supply chain might offer a solution. Such chains are offering “one-stop shopping” for remanufacturing, including reusing and recycling products, parts, and raw materials. Such practices save large amounts of money compared to traditional waste removal. For instance, the Li Tong Group operates 15 reverse supply chain facilities where it offers post-consumer takeback, enterprise IT and telecom asset management. Such practices could provide a prosperous new path in business, where in the consumer electronics industry alone, three to five percent of annual shipment volume is scrapped before a product is even made out of it.
