Reverse Logistics Route Selection Using AHP: A Case Study of Electronics Scrap from Pakistan

Abstract : Selection of optimal route among available choices in the presence of various factors has been a prime focus in logistics. In this paper, Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used for selection of optimum route among available options for revere logistics of electronics scrap from Pakistan to the industry using End of Life (EOL) products as there raw material. The main objective of this study is to find out the optimal reverse logistic path for electronic scrap considering: cost of transportation, time of transportation, volume of goods to be transported, nature of goods (refurbished, recyclable or scrap), and financial value of the goods being transported. Recently developed China Pakistan Economic Corridor named as CPEC is also considered among available routes which are being analyzed. The results show that CPEC is the best possible route. In addition, the proposed mechanism also provides hierarchical list for the possible route preferences which helps in finding an alternate in case the best/better route isn’t available due to some unavoidable factors.
