Just ask the New York Yankees what it’s like to promise fans a Mariano Rivera souvenir bobblehead, but then have that same truckload freight shipment missing when the gates are opened. Yes, that is what you call a logistics nightmare – not to mention a bad customer experience in the making! If you read about this recent story, you may recall that the shipment of bobbleheads finally showed up at the game; but at that point the damage was already done.
