Logistics assessment of four Sri Lanka districts severely affected by the Tsunami. Assessment includes transport and storage capacity
There are very few transport companies in the east of Sri Lanka. Those which can offer 1 to 5 trucks are usually engaged in other businesses for which the use of these trucks is necessary. The companies will offer them for rent for a proper price. However, their businesses (tea, rice, flour, cement industries) might suffer as a consequence.

Participants: Matthew Dee (UNJLC Banda Aceh)
A joint UNJLC/UNICEF mission was undertaken to the main Government controlled towns in Southern Sudan: Juba, Malakal, and Wau. The mission took place between 15th and 27th August 2004 and comprised staff from both Nairobi and Khartoum. The mission aimed to gather data on the logistical situation in each town and the possibilities for supporting increased humanitarian operations in a post peace deal environment.
It was found that in all three locations there were limited logistical assets that could be utilised in an escalation of humanitarian operations.
