Many studies and researches that explore how complexity human needs can be fulfilled with material limitations. Reverse logistics (RL) is one of method that solves this problem and will thoroughly discuss the issue process, planning, strategic, consolidation, internal & external policy, product design, modularity and waste. Reverse Logistics research consists of 5 essential part namely RL Input, RL Process, RL Structure, RL Output and RL System. First, RL Input will analyze the type of raw material, process of disassembling, coordination, supply chain inventory systems, repair and after sales service, remanufacturing, recycling, refurbishing, reusing and production planning. The third, RL Structure discusses about location-allocation problems, inspection & consolidation, integrating manufacturing & remanufacturing, and product modularity. And the fourth is RL Output , research area is pricing after remanufacturing, process & competition and customer relation. And the last part is RL system which discusses more about policy, social and economical aspect and resources. The reasons underlying the existence of reverse logistics research methods are legislation, social responsibility, corporate imaging, environmental concerns, economic benefits and customer awareness. The goal of all reverse logistics researchs is how to minimize all the costs that will be issued by the company so that it can maximize the profit. Keywords Reverse logistics, minimize cost, natural resources, review , customer awareness
