Applying the Principal-Agent Theory for Reverse Logistics Outsourcing

This paper develops a principal-agent model for reverse logistics (RL) outsourcing, on which a variety of principal-agent models are based. The empirical evidence reveals that this model to some extent accounts for the characteristics, the results and the existing problems of foreign, domestic major reverse logistics outsourcing patterns, and specifies the ideal outsourcing development pattern as well.
