Providing an in-depth insight into the management of supply chains in the context of humanitarian logistics, this book considers humanitarian logistics from both a strategic and operational perspective. The authors cover how to set up a supply chain network, supply chain strategy, decision making, procurement, transportation/fleet management/delivery/distribution, warehouse and inventory management, and information technology. They take a problem-based learning approach with each chapter being self-standing, while still relating to the supply chain as a whole. Additionally, the chapters include a case study written by a practitioner in the humanitarian field.
