When a disaster strikes, the response follows. Sometimes the supplies are obtained in advance, especially during the pre-positioning stages. The supplies received from donors and purchased from vendors are transported by various means to predetermined locations and distributed by emergency responders to affected areas. The contracting for this transportation, if in place, results in fast relief. However, the nature of the events creates uncertainties, therefore logistics and contracting have to create an efficient interface. Some primary questions arise: How can initial response time be improved? What will guarantee smooth supply of critical supplies and services? Are existing contracts in place? If not, can and should they be negotiated?
