The LET has provided logistics support during 12 emergency responses and seven preparedness projects since 2007. Most recently, the team responded to Hurricane Matthew in Haiti in October 2016 with warehouse space and staff, and air and sea freight services.
To date, over 190 LET company employees working in disaster-prone countries have been trained on humanitarian logistics, contingency operations and natural disaster emergency response, to better enable them to support future responses.
To build on its success, the LET is supporting a new World Economic Forum initiative, the Community for Effective Humanitarian Response, which brings together humanitarian organizations and other private sector companies to bridge other gaps in the humanitarian system.
