Resumo

Este artigo descreve um estudo de caso em logística reversa sobre embalagens retornáveis adequadas para transporte internacional de peças para motores a diesel. O estudo diz respeito a cabeçotes exportados do Brasil para os Estados Unidos da América, por via marítima. Inicia-se por uma revisão em logística reversa. A seguir descreve-se o caso, com base em informações colhidas pelos pesquisadores junto à empresa. Descrevem-se os fatos, investigam-se as causas que os originaram e compara-se o processo original de exportação, com embalagens descartáveis, com o novo processo, com embalagens retornáveis, que opera um canal de distribuição reverso. Avaliaram-se os ganhos financeiros, logísticos e ambientais do projeto, de forma a relacionar criticamente a teoria com a prática.

Palavras-chave

Logística reversa, embalagens retornáveis, gestão ambiental

Abstract

This paper describes a case study in reverse logistics, dealing with returnable packaging, suitable for international transportation of parts required by diesel engines assembly operations. The study refers to cylinder heads, exported from Brazil to USA, by sea. The paper begins by revisiting issues in reverse logistics. Then describes the case, supported by information gathered by researchers with technical personnel from the firm. Beyond the pure facts, the researchers aimed to find out why the firm took such a decision, comparing the exportation process, how it was and how it is now, and the operation of a reverse distribution channel. The text assesses financials, logistics and environmental benefits from the actions, relating critically theory and practice.

Keywords
