Logistics and procurement

Improving logistics and procurement systems

Without reliable logistics and procurement, product shortages quickly jeopardise the effectiveness of humanitarian programmes. For groups like MSF that work as close as possible to people needing aid, last-mile delivery is especially challenging. Maintaining proximity can mean working in places that are extremely difficult to reach due to conflict, displacement, or lack of infrastructure.

We are working to increase the reliability of humanitarian supply lines and decrease their cost. We can help you explore technological innovations as well as systemic ones, like alternative suppliers or distribution lines, to improve the logistics and procurement systems sustaining MSF field programmes. Our location in East Asia is again a huge comparative advantage for exploring such tech-based and systems-level innovations.
