Monthly Operation Overview - June 2015

The Logistics Cluster is responsible for providing logistics coordination, information management and, where there is a gap in logistics infrastructure, WFP, as lead-agency of the Logistics Cluster, acts as a ‘Provider of Last Resort’ by offering common logistics services to support the humanitarian community in their response operations.

Highlights of the Operation

  • In June, the Logistics Cluster airlifted 290 mt of humanitarian supplies on behalf of 19 organisations to 23 destinations.

  • The Logistics Cluster facilitated the airlift of over 6,000 ‘survival kits’ into areas within southern Unity, cut off from aid for a prolonged period due to insecurity.

  • Cargo for the second Logistics Cluster barge from Bor to Malakal is currently being consolidated, and will be dispatched to the Upper Nile State at the end of July.
