  • Description:
    The devastation caused by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti was compounded by the significant logistical

    challenges of distributing relief to those in need. Unfortunately this is the case with many disasters.

    Rapid and efficient distribution of water, food, medication and other essential supplies is crucial to

    saving lives and rebuilding the region. Our research team at Northwestern University is leveraging our

    expertise in supply chain management and vehicle navigation under uncertainty to study design and

    operational improvements for humanitarian relief chains. This project will bring insights from this

    research to the relief community through the development of decision‐making tools for supply

    distribution.
