We investigate the impact of advance notice of the product returns on the performance of a closed loop supply chain with lead-times. A proportion of the sold products to the market are returned to an external remanufacturer. After a lead-time the used products are converted into "as-good-as-new" products to be used, together with new products, to satisfy market demand. We demonstrate that the lead-times and parameters describing the return rate have a significant impact on the manufacturer's performance.
