CONGRESO Internet of things in the field of Reverse Logistics


The concept of Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a network of everyday objects connected through internet. This new concept is producing significant changes in the use that is given to certain everyday objects and is having a significant impact on the activities performed in organizations. So, something can be a generator of information, being more immediately available at the occurrence of events. This can be exploited by businesses for faster and better performance of your business and its environment. IoT may be, therefore, a tool of special relevance in Reverse Supply Chain scenarios, which is essential to quickly know the event that triggers the recovery of proceeds to initiate and coordinate its inverse flux. The aim of this paper is to analyze the usefulness of IoT in a context of Reverse Supply Chain.
