Kühne Foundation - HELP Logistics

Operational Research

The supply chain is an interconnected and dynamic system with a high level of complexity involving flows of goods, funds, data and people. In the humanitarian context, the supply chain is a critical backbone of relief operations to reach affected populations in a timely and cost efficient manner. In collaboration with Kühne Logistics University (KLU), we are researching and developing new ways of understanding humanitarian supply chains.

Preparedness Investment Model (PIM)

The Preparedness Investment and Impact Model (PIM) developed to identify, analyse, and quantify preparedness investment opportunities in the supply chain and their saving potential in terms of lead-time and cost. The findings support strategic preparedness decisions within organisations and facilitate discussions with governments and donors to invest smarter and earlier.   > More information

Supply Chain Resilience (SCR) Modelling

This simulation model aims to test the ability of a supply chain to anticipate, absorb, adapt to, and/or rapidly recover from disruptions while maintaining continuous business operations and ensuring that commodities are delivered efficiently and effectively to beneficiaries.  > More information
