[en] Reducing environmental impact, related regulations and potential for operational benefits are the main reasons why companies share their returnable transport items (RTIs) among the different partners of a closed-loop supply chain. Face-to-face interviews with senior executives from seven companies involved in RTIs were conducted to gain a thorough understanding of how they manage the flow of RTIs as well as how they determine the number of RTIs needed in a fleet. Results indicate that RTIs managements are quite diverse, that some common beliefs about RTIs do not apply to all RTI types, and that research efforts are needed in the areas of RTI acquisition; warehouse layout, inventory routing problem; production planning and control; tracking and scheduling.
