Abstract: Reverse logistics (RL) plays an important role in many industries especially in the electronics industry and helps sustainability businesses while also reducing environmental impacts. The electronics industry is one of the most rapidly growing industries in Thailand. Many companies adopted RL for their business process but still enforce some barriers that make it unsuccessful. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the relationship of RL barriers and solutions then examines the relationship between these factors. A conceptual model was developed by proposing four hypotheses in which structural equation modelling (SEM) was used to examine the proposed model. The main results of this study show that there are statistics significant of the proposed hypothesis. In conclusion, the proposed model could fit with the empirical data. The proposed results could reconfirm that there are statistics significant of the relationship between RL barriers and solutions of RL practices implementation in Thailand electronics industry.
