Supply Chain Disaster Relief with ALAN Aid
Live from ProMat 2019, we chat with Kathy Fulton of the American Logistics Aid Network. ALAN is an industry-wide organization that exists to provide supply chain assistance to disaster relief organizations (and other non-profits). They do this by bringing the expertise and resources of the logistics industry together with non-profit disaster relief organizations so that they can help solve the most pressing supply chain challenges immediately after disasters strike. That way, help – and hope – arrive sooner. Just as important, ALAN exists to help humanitarian organizations make every logistics dollar count. After all, studies show that up to 80 percent of their crisis spending goes to logistics. And of that, as much as 40 percent may be wasted simply because these organizations don’t have the right supply chain equipment, knowledge or connections at their disposal.
