dc.description.abstract Reverse logistics is the process of planning, implementing and controlling the efficient and effective flow of raw materials, in process inventory, finished goods and related information from the point of consumption to the point of origin for the purpose of recapturing or creating value or for proper disposal. The crucial purpose of this study was to explain the effect of reverse logistics practice on competitiveness of TANA plastic factory. With specific aim of; determining effect of remanufacturing practice, examining effect of recycling practice and investigating effect of re use practice on competitiveness of tana plastic factory. This study was guided by two fundamental theory (system based and resource based theory). To achieve the aim of this study, explanatory and descriptive research design were adopted with quantitative research approach. The target population of the study was formed by 68 employees from six departments. And a total of 50 sample units were employed for study from the main departments through census. The researcher employed primary data collected by administering questionnaire. Accordingly, 48 (96 %.) of questionnaires were correctly filled, returned and applied for analysis and SPSS version 23 was employed to analyse the gathered data. In which, descriptive statistics of mean and standard deviation was used to establish patterns and trends. Multiple regression model was established to predict the relationship between the dependent and independent variables. The study found that reverse logistics practices (re use, remanufacture and recycle) have a significant and positive impact on the organizational competitiveness of TANA plastic factory. Which means, an effective reverse logistics practice can give an organization the necessary competitive advantage to move beyond competitors, and possibly have larger market share within their industry. All the three variables were found to have statistically significant predicting power on the competitiveness of firms. Thus, this study recommended that the management of tana plc and various plastic manufacturing firms should improve on adoption of reverse logistics practice. en_US
