A dynamic Milk Run in WEEE Reverse Logistics

  title={A dynamic Milk Run in WEEE Reverse Logistics},
  author={Guido Guizzi and Roberto Revetria and Daniela Chiocca and Elpidio Romano},
The management of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is an important and critical aspect in the field of Reverse Logistics. The strategic importance of good treatment of waste is fundamental for reaching the objectives of environmental protection (as energy, natural resources, waste reduction) and economics goals (the lower cost of secondary raw materials for example). The following study is focused on the problem of management of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The…

Combining or Separating Forward and Reverse Logistics

This paper contributes to RL theory by identifying the contextual factors that determine the most advantageous relationship between forward and RL, and proposes a novel decision-making framework for practitioners.

WEEE reverse logistics and its impact on economic and environmental sustainability: computer industry case studies

High consumption and shorter product life cycle of EEE (electrical and electronic equipment) have been generating huge WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) over time. However, simply low

Milk-run routing and scheduling subject to a trade-off between vehicle fleet size and storage capacity

The main contribution of the present study is the identification of the relationship between takt time and the size of replenishment batches, which allows to determine the delivery time windows for milkrun delivery and, ultimately, the positioning of trade-off points.


Milk-run methodology is proposed to manage the procurement of orders from suppliers. The heuristic solution methods in the literature generally apply stepwise approach to route and load the vehicles.

A methodological approach to manage WEEE recovery systems in a push/pull logic

The objective is to maximize the WEEE recovery rate to effectively support the production of new products, creating on one side the conceptual basis of the Closed Loop Supply Chain, and on the other side minimizing the environmental impact of production processes in exploiting natural resources.

A new mathematical modeling and a genetic algorithm search for milk run problem (an auto industry supply chain case study)

The idea of Milk Run has been used in the context of logistic and supply chain problems in order to manage the transportation of materials. In this paper, we propose a new Milk Run method, as a mixed

A comparison of production policies in remanufacturing systems

In remanufacturing systems material management and production planning, unlike what happens in traditional production settings, are made difficult by a wider uncertainty affecting the quantity, the
