An interview with Lionel Schenal, Logistics Officer in charge of sea operations for Yemen

Lionel is based in Djibouti and from there he manages the voyages of the WFP-chartered vessels VOS Apollo and VOS Theia. It was not easy to lock thirty minutes in his incredibly busy schedule and sure enough he arrived late, directly from the port of Djibouti.

“Sorry, I normally make a point of being punctual, but there has been some last minutes changes that needed my attention” - he says as he enters the office that hosts the Logistics Cluster team in Djibouti.
