In such situations, humanitarian logistics managers must have the ability to quickly construct and operate a supply chain to bring relief to those in need.

Developed for experienced humanitarian logisticians and medical specialists handling the medical supply, MedLog focuses on medical items’ special supply chain requirements, with emphasis on preventing the introduction of counterfeit or substandard items to the supply chain.
