In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) is working with its relief agency partners to identify crucial needs and share them with members of the supply chain industry.
“We are in communication with state, regional, and national Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOADs) as well as emergency management agencies,” said ALAN President Jock Menzies. “We are standing by to provide assistance for transportation services, staging areas, storage, expert advice, and other vital resources.”
ALAN is a non-profit organization that engages the supply chain community to support humanitarian relief efforts.

. To streamline relief efforts, ALAN is aggregating needs posted to the National Donations Management Network (NDMN) from storm-affected states, so potential donors do not have to review each state portal individually.
In partnership with Rutgers University, ALAN is also collecting information on supply chain disruptions resulting from this event to help identify potential resource shortfalls and determine where support from emergency and non-profit organizations may be needed most.
