Humanitarian emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. How and how fast we respond is critical. More than ever, effective logistics management and getting the right people together at the right time makes the difference.

The Humanitarian Logistics Association (HLA) is a non-profit membership organisation with a global reach. HLA’s goal is to empower logisticians to drive cross sector solutions that are locally sustainable and globally enabled to deliver aid more effectively.

Our members are drawn from across the sector – NGOs, private sector suppliers, academics and individuals working on the front line. HLA provides a platform for them to come together to share knowledge, collaborate and discuss innovative solutions which deliver aid swiftly to people, when they need it most.

Member benefits include:

Entry to the annual Health and Humanitarian Conference and other HLA events throughout the year.

The ability to add your organisation or business to our supplier database which will enable you to promote your products and services to other members.

Access to upload tenders for procurement of products, services or consultancy.

Admission to the member-only area on our website which provides a platform for discussion, direct member-to-member communication, to post and find jobs within the sector and access career development opportunities.
