I have been asked for assistance by a graduate student doing her masters thesis on Reverse Logistics. She is preparing a survey and would also like to interview a few companies to study the cost analysis used to decide between managing Reverse Logistics in-house vs. outsourcing.

If you are interested in helping further research on our emerging industry, please let me know. Even if you only have a few minutes to speak on the phone with her. Your assistance will help us all!

I would like to thank Cindy Chian for his/her comment. I am an Msc Business Process Management, University of Brighton, and the links provided by this website are going to help me a lot with my dissertation topic (that definetively will be about RL). It is been really difficult to find literature available regarding to the companies process and cost of RL.

All the best,
