Reverse logistics on example of end-of-life vehicles

The aim of the article is to present the concept and role of company reverse logistics - a concept whose importance is systematically growing. Due to economic reasons, closed logistic chains affect the efficiency of logistic systems of enterprises, therefore there is a need to learn both theoretical models and find practical solutions. The article presents the concept and the essence of reverse logistics, paying attention to a closed logistic chain. The theoretical considerations have been supported by the example of systemic organizational solutions for end-of-life vehicles under recycling. The basis for the description of empirical solutions was the Dutch experience due to the advanced level of development of reverse logistics in the field of end-of-life vehicles (ELV) disposal and recycling.
