This paper provides a weighted flow distribution in the application of reverse logistics in a production unit. For the better understanding of reverse logistics, the definition and features of reverse logistics are first introduced. The difference between the forward and reverse logistics system is briefly tabulated. The classification of the reverse logistics on the loop basis is defined thereafter. The reasons to improve reverse logistics management system are explained. A mathematical formula for the optimization is derived with respect to various parameters which was further derived into weighted formula for providing preferences for transportation etc.
