An effective global humanitarian logistics community of practice

The HLA is creating a network of members that work to support the growing humanitarian logistics community of practice. We aim to advocate for recognition of our profession and good practices; promote inter-agency linkages and logistics cluster activities; gather and share news; share information on the latest solutions & tools and assist our peers.

A “Red Dot”is a volunteer HLA member based in a country or region with responsibility to expand the aims and objectives of the association. Local Red Dot activities maybe supported remotely by the HLA secretariat and can include formal or informal meetings, workshops, seminars or webinars to discuss the latest news and innovations in the humanitarian logistics sector. Red Dots promote the sharing of information and knowledge and provide peer-to-peer support.

Increasingly in complex disasters, logisticians and other relief workers are called on to provide solutions beyond their own experience andknowledge. Immediate specialist technical support helps ensure that personnel, often working in remote locations, can solve problems quickly and effectively, and provide better assistance to local populations. 

In partnership with RedR UK, we provide free, expert advice to NGOs and logisticians undertaking programmes anywhere in the world through the platform KnowledgePoint.

If you’re involved in any kind of humanitarian or development work and have a technical problem in the field, ask us a question and get our expert advice – fast. 



Contact HLA Membership if you either need advice or are a logistics specialist willing to volunteer your time
