Abstract

Article presents the relationships between the circular economy and reverse logistic with a particular emphasis on the role of processes in reverse logistics and circular economy principles in the creation of closed loop supply chains. The main links between reverse logistic and circular economy were identified on the basis of a literature review. The main found of the analysis is the conclusion that circular economy concept is broader than reverse logistic, because it is not only covers the reverse flows but also the forward flows in supply chains with several unique characteristics and services.
