Increased competition in the current era, Environmental laws and regulations and Economic benefits Due respect to the field of supply chain sustainability Caused the companies will pay special attention to the Green supply chain management and reverse logistics. Although the companies are increasingly under pressure to consider green and reverse logistics activities in their supply chains, but because there are obstacles in the use and development of reverse logistics, its implementation has been limited. Reverse logistics is very important in the paper industry because of the need to save money, reduce costs and prevent tree felling. Therefore, identifying strategies and solutions to tackle these barriers is essential. In this study, addition to identify barriers of implementing reverse logistics, Reverse logistics strategies to overcome barriers were also identified and prioritized. At first, by review of accomplished researches in this area, a list of barriers and criteria were identified. Then, by using the Fuzzy Delphi method, identification Criteria were mitigation and finalized. Then by using of SWARA method Criteria and sub criteria were weighted. Also a list of solution in order to tackle with reverse logistics implementation barriers were identified from the literature. In the next step, using the WASPAS methods, identified solution were prioritized. The results showed that Twelfth solution (create, develop and invest in reverse logistics technology) was selected as the most important solution.
