Explain logistics tasks involved in one service supply chain, say, involving a hospital or restaurant

  1. Find an example of a product you have recently purchased. Identify the logistics tasks that would have to take place in order for the product to be available for you to have the ability to purchase it.
  2. Explain logistics tasks involved in one service supply chain, say, involving a hospital or restaurant. How different are these tasks versus those involved in a manufacturing supply chain?
  3. Consider an item you have recently returned. Identify the steps the company would have to go through to return the product back up the supply chain from where you have returned it. What costs do you think would be involved in this process? Is there a way the company can design this reverse logistics process in order to add value and make a profit?
