The Logistics Project is registering as a Community Interest Company. We are starting the process of building a secure self sustaining agency by providing consultancy services to Aid & Development Agencies, Charities, Not for Profits and the Corporate Social Responsibility departments of companies looking to work in aid. Being a CIC we don’t need to pay dividends to any shareholders or investors so all the money gets reinvested in the two activities The Logistics Project concept was built on the DRU and the GIMP (yes we know this is funny).
The Disaster Relief Unit deploys to disaster zones within 12 hours of the incident and starts to look at co-ordinate in the logistics efforts by filling the capability gaps in rapid onset disasters. Often there is insufficient logistics capacity in country to absorb the huge surge of cargo that arrives post disaster. The DRU is manned by specialist logisticians who have donated their time either free of charge or sponsored by their company. They will be trained by The Logistics Project’s Humanitarian Leadership Training Academy (HuLTA) in how to apply their expertise to the humanitarian setting, how to survive in a disaster zone and how to co-ordinate with UN and NGO agencies. The aim is to have a team in country to work with all aid agencies in solving problems of arrival, clearing, storage and distribution of aid materiel.
