  1. 1. Exploring Collaborative Mobile Storage Units in the Humanitarian Supply Chain

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Teknisk logistik

    Författare :Jacob Karlsson; Björn Sanders; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Humanitarian Logistics; Humanitarian Supply Chain Management; Logistics; Warehouse; Mobile Storage Units; Disaster Management Cycle; Public Warehouse; Bangladesh; Syria; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is an explorative single case study on the United Nations Logistics Cluster with the purpose to explore the usage of collaborative Mobile Storage Unit (MSU) warehouses in terms of determining their activities’ and decisions’ connection to the disaster management cycle, as well as their challenges’ connection to the contextual factors of the humanitarian supply chain (HSC). It attempts to answer questions (1) What are the collaborative MSU activities and decisions throughout the phases of the disaster management cycle? and (2) How do humanitarian contextual factors influence challenges to collaborative MSU activities and decisions in humanitarian logistics?.
