In this masters thesis the author discusses the opportunities for third party logis-tics service providers (3PL) to provide logistics services on the sector of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in Austria. He tries to determine the major factors why it would make sense for 3PL to focus on this niche market. Therefore he gives information about the whole recycling value chain for Austrian WEEE containing information about the members on the market, the processes that have to be done and the legal restrictions. Furthermore he defines this special market for 3PL, including definitions for the supply side, the demand side and the possible competitors. Moreover he comments on how processes are already done at the moment and what motives do exist on the demand side to source these services out. The masters thesis ends with a summary and a precise answer of the research questions.
