Episode 8: Behind the scenes of humanitarian logistics by Universal Postal Union published on 2022-01-27T12:12:31Z Episode 8: Delivering in crises – Behind the scenes of humanitarian logistics According to the Global Humanitarian Overview, in 2022, 274 million people will require humanitarian assistance. Ensuring its timely provision is the task of humanitarian logistics. Over the recent decades, with the growing number and complexity of crises and the related growing pressure on the supply chain, humanitarian logistics professionals needed to respond with greater transparency, further digitalization and greener solutions. While the main driver behind these life-saving deliveries – to deliver by any means, at any cost – is different from commercial ones, those responsible for them generally face the same challenges and trends as the entire logistics sector. All this and more is covered on Voice Mail’s Episode 8 with Sophie Gligorijevic, Head of the Logistics Division at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) – one of the oldest and most prominent humanitarian actors on the ground.
