What is it about?

Humanitarian supply chains (HSCs) face many challenges in supplying vulnerable (or needy) locations. Although, on the one hand, they face issues similar to business chains, on the other hand, anticipation, proactivity, and responsiveness are directly related, in many cases, to the numbers of lives saved and the reduction of harm. This context increases the complexity and hinders the replication of actions as each event can constitute a new chain. Despite this, the literature has consistently asserted that HSCs can be improved by adopting practices from commercial supply chains (CSCs). However, this position does not negate the fact that the opposite must also be true.
