ALAN Launches Logistics Initiative Improving Access To Disaster Aid

[shareaholic app="share_buttons" id="13106399"]

As non-profits across the country struggle with inflationary pressures, one logistics non-profit organization is shoring up its efforts to help them make every disaster relief dollar count – and to assist disaster survivors more quickly.

The American Logistics Aid Network today launched an initiative to help the non-profit community build stronger disaster supply chain networks.

Funded through a Walmart Foundation grant, the ALAN project will provide disaster focused non-profits with the opportunity to learn and apply a variety of best supply chain practices that have been gleaned from other humanitarian organizations as well as the commercial logistics community. The project will also create a stronger framework for more frequent logistics collaboration between non-profits and private businesses.
