Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

"the detailed coordination of a complex operation involving many people, facilities, or supplies."

Basically, everything dealing with moving stuff around. You have forward logistics, going from manufacturer to retail/consumer, and reverse logistics, going back form consumer (i.e., returns)
