When natural disasters strike: The Logistics Emergency Teams
Natural disasters and the breakdown of society's infrastructure are a revealing reminder of the importance of logistics and infrastructure, which in daily life is taken for granted.
Agility, Maersk, TNT and UPS are experts in transport and logistics. The four companies have formed a partnership called the "Logistics Emergency Teams" (LET) lending it's support and expertise to the World Food Programme (WFP).
The common goal is to contain loss and suffering when natural disasters strike.
In July 2011, 25 employees from the LET partners came together on a three day intense training seminar at the TNT headquarters in Hoofddorp, Holland.
