Reverse logistics is an activity within organizations delegated to the customer service function, where customers with warranted or defective products would return them to their suppliers. To rank third-party reverse logistic (3PL) providers with regard to various criteria, including dual-role factors, this paper introduces a new model, which is based on data envelopment analysis. A numerical example demonstrates the application of the proposed model.
