Logistics Disaster, Leads to Recycling Headache

Great article and video in the Wall Street Journal about a cargo boat that tipped over carrying nearly 5,000 brand new Mazda cars worth $100 million. Instead of reselling them for cheap Mazda decided to scrap them all and cut them up into little pieces. The pieces will then be shipped back to Asia and recycled and perhaps made into cars again. Almost an end to end supply chain right before your eyes! What would you have done?

Check out the article and video.
