Transport plays a key role in mobilizing supplies to help emergency humanitarian assistance reach affected regions. Allied services have to this effect been able to support the humanitarian sector while partnering with both local and international NGO’s within and out of South Sudan. Humanitarian logistics encompasses moving goods and equipment, relocating disaster-affected people, transferring casualties, and moving of aid, relief workers and volunteers.
In humanitarian logistics, it is important to determine the feasibility of various forms of transport on the basis of the level of urgency, total costs, and geographical characteristics of affected zones which we as Allied Services is capable of. Around two-thirds of funding in each emergency is spent on logistics, highlighting the need for effective and efficient systems.
