Study at the No. Specialise in the management of complex systems used for global product supply. Learn to manage the flow of goods and services from point of origin to consumer. Develop supply chain skills in minimising wastage and maximising profit.
Reverse logistics Developing innovative and more sustainable approaches to reverse logistics for the collection, recycling and disposal of waste products from urban centres. Research into sustainable distribution has largely focused on improving the delivery of products through the supply chain from manufacturer to end customer by developing fundamental understanding of the various supply chain operations at work in an urban centre.
Little research has been undertaken to understand the logistics which support the running of retail establishments in urban areas, the return of damaged, unsold or returned consumer products to manufacturers, and the consolidation, handling and disposal of waste products and recyclables generated by the retail process.
With the introduction of the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment WEEE Directive, and the new classification of hazardous waste products under the Hazardous Waste Regulations, the onus is on retailers and manufacturers to participate in specific waste product take-back schemes.
There is therefore a need to address the associated transport impacts these acts could have and develop strategies and processes to mitigate any negative effects.
Urban sustainability may be improved by co-ordinating the collection and movement of customer returns, waste products and recyclables generated by the different retail supply chains in urban centres.
Through the use of case study examples, this work module is focused on developing fundamental understanding of how new technologies and operating practices could contribute to sustainable solutions in this area. The main objectives of this module are to: Review the characteristics of and decision processes behind the various transport chains which supply core goods and services to, and collect returns and handle waste products from businesses in urban areas.
Develop a substantial knowledge base providing a fundamental understanding of the current environmental and social impacts of these collective supply chain operations.
Quantify and appraise the potential impacts of these new technologies and operating practices through simulation and focused demonstration to enable the effects to be understood for subsequent promotion. Tasks To meet these objectives the work will be undertaken under three main work packages WP: Understanding supply chains delivering core goods and services, handling returns and collecting waste Investigating supply chain interactions and understanding opportunities for improvement through technology and new operating practices Selected implementation of case study demonstrations and evaluation Actual: New WM10 reports, articles and deliverables were added on 28 Decemberon reverse logistics and urban deliverieson supply chains, and on methodology.However in Malaysia, logistics practitioners have still largely not implemented a similar strategy in the latter that forms the foundation of green logistics thus helping to reduce carbon emissions in Malaysia.
