Disasters come in all sizes. Big ones, little ones and catastrophies! One thing they all have in common is that logistics will be a component of the disaster resonse and the recovery.

Check out this Disaster Zone Podcast: The Challenge of Disaster Logistics which highlights how governments working in partnership with private industry can achieve more.

The podcast description follows:

Logistics is a challenging function, even if it's just shipping Christmas gifts from one end of the country to the other. Add the challenge of logistics during and following a disaster, and the difficulties mount. In this podcast, Gerardo Castillo, president of AshBritt Management and Logistics, is interviewed about his experience, the challenge of logistics, and some history and solutions for the problem of logistics and finding solutions that work. It was impressive how much time his company spends planning during “blue sky” days.
