Abstract

Reverse logistics activities, which are the process of taking products back to the supply chain point for disposal and recycling are quite expensive and complex. While the importance of reverse logistics varies according to its sector and its economic contribution, it has reached an important size in the world in recent years. In the pharmaceutical sector, which has a continuously developing economy, the successful continuation of reverse logistics applications is important both economically and in terms of customers. In this study, performance evaluation was performed by 6 pharmaceutical companies operating in Turkey. 8 criteria have been determined in line with the indicators obtained in the literature survey for drug company evaluation. It was analyzed by TOPSIS and MOORA methods, two of the most critical decision making techniques in the evaluation. In this evaluation, it was examined how the companies in the pharmaceutical sector perform in reverse logistics. The study was applied in line with the opinions of 5 experts from the Turkish pharmaceutical and medical device institution and performance ratings of the companies were made according to the results found.

Keywords: TOPSIS, Drug Industry, Reverse Logistics, MOORA
