Supply chain and logistics play a critical role in ensuring critical supplies are delivered effectively and efficiently in humanitarian settings to save lives and alleviate suffering from disasters and disruptions. However, many local humanitarian organisations in Southeast Asia have limited access to logistics expertise, especially those located in less developed countries.
To help bridge this gap, HELP Logistics is collaborating with Trisakti Institute of Transportation and Logistics (ITL) Indonesia to enhance humanitarian supply chain operations and build the internal capacities of local organisations in Indonesia and surrounding countries.
The collaboration aims to leverage the logistics and supply chain management expertise of both organisations to strengthen the humanitarian logistics network, with a focus on technical consulting projects, capacity building, and academic research.
The primary objective of the partnership is to develop a sub hub for humanitarian logistics (HUMLOG) in Indonesia, consisting of professors, consultants, and researchers. As part of the partnership, local humanitarian organisations will receive consulting and training services, with a particular emphasis on supply chain analytics.
ITL Trisakti brings a wealth of expertise and experience in logistics and supply chain management to the partnership. The university is committed to building capacity at the grassroots, with a strong foundation in the principles and practices of logistics. Through its local expert team and various initiaves, ITL aims to create an inclusive and supportive community that provides supply chain expertise to build capacity, especially for those located in rural and venerable communities.
