Many of the challenges in management of a commercial supply chain are also reflected in military and humanitarian logistics. Disaster response consists of various logistics operations such as inventory management and distribution which are an important part of the response supply chain. Although demand patterns and demand locations change only occasionally in commercial enterprises, they change frequently within the context of conflict and disaster. The complexity of humanitarian logistics can be appreciated when the distribution process through this response supply chain, as well as those factors and characteristics of the distribution chain that are changing, are taken into account.
