Studies on the sustainability of the logistics in the online retail clothing industry hav e concentrated on the outward process with relatively little r esearch on the returns pro cess. Yet returns in the clothing industry range from 25% to 60% , involving a great deal of logistics . The complexities involved in analysing sustainability in the reverse logistics process is unveiled in this paper using a detailed case study of the retur ns of a small Swedish clothing company ; Nudie Jeans (NJ). The challenges and barriers to sustainability are discussed in terms of five key activities: mitigation, gate keeping, collection, sorting and disposal.
