Humanitarian logistics: Making a difference in times of urgency
Natural disasters and humanitarian crises don’t keep time, so we make sure we are at your service 24/7. At NRS International, we offer an efficient global logistics service. Our strategic locations in Dubai and Pakistan ensure that our emergency stockpiles are ready for immediate deployment. In the immediate aftermath of any disaster, we provide core relief items and disaster relief supplies that are vital for survival, such as family tents, refugee shelters, tarpaulins, water containers, blankets and mosquito nets. We keep a substantial supply of these products to answer immediate needs and we can respond to large demands within short periods of time.
We are ready to respond to global challenges by offering high quality and cost-effective disaster relief supplies to international agencies, bilateral donors, governments and non-governmental organisations. Our international network and multilingual, multicultural staff work round-the-clock to assist our clients and partners around the globe. We are here as your reliable partner in reaching out to those in need, and, in the process, become instrumental in saving people’s lives.
Check out these personal statements from our colleague Milko Manolov as he talks about the role we play in the humanitarian supply chain:
“When it comes to delivery of relief goods, no destination is too difficult for us. Together with my team of logistic experts we make a difference in times of urgency. During the unprecedented Rohingya and Caribbean crises, we managed to shift goods quickly and efficiently. We navigated difficult circumstances, aiming to deliver down to the last mile. Our goal is simple: to enable our clients to deliver aid essentials to beneficiaries as quickly as possible. Personally, I consider every successful shipment as a big achievement.“
“We understand that humanitarian logistics is crucial to emergency response. We frequently cite that 80% of humanitarian aid is logistics. Working hand in hand with our in-house logistics team and trusted carriers, I see to it that the required goods as procured by our clients are exactly where they need to be at the agreed time. With our integrated approach, we coordinate inter-organizational performance, eliminate redundancy, and maximize efficiency along our supply chain.” – Cristina Ortiz, Sales Support Supervisor at NRS International
