Nowadays, more and more people pay their attentions in the reverse logistic industry in the car industry. There are many different kinds of reasons. First of all, for most of the Chinese car industry, they should get the accessories from the other suppliers and then combine them together to make a car. If they do not know the detailed information about the quantity of the parts, they may have many stocks. Besides, since the reform and open policy and the quick development of the economy, China is trying its best to develop itself. But due to the low beginning points, the industry levels may still not so high. And the WTO gives China a lot of opportunities to develop better in the future.

In the developed countries, the car industry has certain scales and it contributes a lot to the society, economy and the environment. They also have the basic stage like China now. Take the America as an example. The American renewable industry has reached 2400 billion dollars, which has already over the car industry and become the core industry in the United States. When talking about the auto parts of the car industry, there are 1.15 million corporations with different sizes. They all can be responsible for themselves. However, for the Chinese auto manufactures, they still mainly rely on the government supports, without which they cannot survive. Thus, it is very necessary for the Chinese auto industry to get rid of the severe situations and reach the success like the developed countries. What is more, for the social parts, the reverse logistics can provide a lot of job chances for the public, as the renewable process do really need a lot of staffs due to its complicated.
