News: A facility location model for logistics systems including reverse flows: The case of remanufacturing activities

For this problem, we propose a 0–1 mixed integer programming model, in which we simultaneously consider “forward” and “reverse” flows and their mutual interactions. An algorithm based on Lagrangian heuristics is developed and the model is tested on data adapted from classical test problems.
