The purchase of a product often marks the end of a supply chain. But increasingly consumers are questioning the traditional linear process of “take, make, dispose”, demanding that manufacturers and retailers ensure that they reduce or eliminate waste. In the circular economy, logistics companies play an important role in extending the life of products through reuse, remanufacturing and recycling.
