This document provides an overview of how to access the logistics services offered by the Logistics Cluster to all humanitarian actors responding to the Floods in Mozambique.

These Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) specify the services to be provided by the Logistics Cluster, through WFP Logistics, in its capacity as global lead of the Logistics Cluster, how to access services, and the conditions under which the services will be provided.

The objective of the services provided by the Logistics Cluster is to ensure that humanitarian actors (“Organisations”) are not faced with interruption in their supply chain while responding in emergency operations. In this regard, the Logistics Cluster, under this SOP, will provide efficient and coordinated storage and transport services. The services provided by the Logistics Cluster under this SOP are not intended to replace the logistics capacity of other organisations, or to compete with commercial markets in country.

Services provided under the SOP may be withdrawn at any time in part or in full, for any of the following reasons:

  • Change in the situation where the service is provided;

  • If there is no longer a perceived need for cargo prioritisation, facilitation or/and coordination;

  • Funding constraints.

This document will be updated as the situation evolves and operational requirements develop.
Updated versions will be sent to the User Group via email.
