Abstract: The selection of reverse logistics service provider (RLSP) can bring economic benefits. Considering the current development of reverse logistics in manufacturing, process and domestic appliances industries, this paper proposes a set of factors influencing selection of service provider and uses a DEMATEL method to establish relation matrixes reflecting the relationships among those factors. The interaction among the criteria is analysed before arriving at a decision for the selection of RLSP. The research enables better understanding of the complex relationships of the key attribute in the decision making environment and improves the reliability of the decision making process.
