Recent natural disasters in Europe stressed the importance of the design and operation of efficient and effective relief distribution networks and revealed the limitations in preparedness policy, in terms of disaster logistics operations, at local and regional level.
Reviews from related projects, having policy implementation character, reveal an opportunity for improving significantly relief logistics operations by addressing the following key issues:
- Identification of main emergency logistic problems from civil protection authorities' point of view.
- Creation of an e-library of best practices, lessons learnt and strategic/tactic actions for emergency logistics processes.
- Development of a toolbox that will support decision making in terms of preparedness logistics operations.
