Linking advanced tracking technology with global humanitarian relief
Implementation of tracking technology speeds distribution time, provides verifiable receipt of vital provisions ensuring equitable distribution, and minimizes theft. This also helps to provide full visibility into the supply chain journey of urgently needed items through the critical ‘last mile’ of delivery to refugees, where human tracking and data input errors often lead to inconsistent delivery and distribution.
UPS Relief Link aims to help improve the lives of displaced refugees around the world. The program does this through optimized distribution and tracking of critical supplies in crisis-affected areas. It combines the use of a hand-held scanning tool and durable identification cards to deliver superior efficiency by eliminating paper records in the refugee camps.
