Relief Supply Chain Management for Disasters: Humanitarian, Aid and Emergency Logistics

Book Description

Relief supply chains are the most agile and dynamic supply chains, yet research in this area of supply chain management (SCM) is limited. Relief Supply Chain Management for Disasters: Humanitarian, Aid and Emergency Logistics furthers the scholarly understanding of SCM in disaster relief. Recent natural and manmade disasters have brought relief SCM to the forefront of the global response to tragedy, establishing the central role of logistics in averting and limiting unnecessary hardships. The lessons learned during these crises have far-reaching applications for both daily logistics and worst case scenarios and they are represented in this book as a much-needed reference for the advancement of the field.
