Generally speaking, Purdue -- given its position in the rankings and its strengths in supply chain/operations management -- is probably a safe bet.

However, you might want to narrow your search down either by your preferred post-MBA firm (DHL/Fedex/etc.) or other industry-specific role. You might be surprised if you use Duncan's Linkedin method: something like Penn State - Smeal might turn out to be a better bet, depending on what your goals are.

Does anybody have any idea about how good Michigan Broad is for careers in logistics? I've applied to that program as well as ASU Carey...

As has been suggested previously in this thread, why don't you scour Linkedin to see what schools feed into the big logistics companies? I think that in general, Broad does pretty well in placing in associated industries/functions like operations and supply chain, but so does Carey. I think that it would ultimately depend on which specific companies you want to work for; finding out which schools place in those companies would be important.
