The large-scale adoption of reusable packaging solutions is challenging without active retailer engagement. Retailers often express reluctance to embrace products in reusable packaging due to the additional costs they introduce compared to disposable alternatives. To address this issue, our paper examines two potential contract strategies (buy-back and revenue sharing), as means to coordinate the channel between retailers and manufacturers effectively.


Mahyar Taheri is a PhD candidate in the field of Sustainable Operation Management & Logistics at Kühne Logistics University under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Yann Bouchery (KEDGE), Prof. Dr. Sandra Transchel (KLU), and Prof. Dr. Jan Fransoo (Tilburg) since February 2020. His research is in the field of operational management of reusable packages. Mahyar received his master`s degree in Industrial Engineering at the University of Tehran in January 2017.
