This paper surveys two key issues in closed-loop supply chain (CLSC) research: return functions and coordination mechanisms. The return function provides the rule according to which end-of-life/use products are returned to a collector. The coordination mechanisms consist of the adoption of a certain mechanism (e.g., a contract) to align the closed-loop supply chain members’ objectives. We describe latest thinking in these two major CLSC-related fields and suggest future research directions to be undertaken.

Abstract

This paper surveys two key issues in closed-loop supply chain (CLSC) research: return functions and coordination mechanisms. The return function provides the rule according to which end-of-life/use products are returned to a collector. The coordination mechanisms consist of the adoption of a certain mechanism (e.g., a contract) to align the closed-loop supply chain members’ objectives. We describe latest thinking in these two major CLSC-related fields and suggest future research directions to be undertaken.
