Minneapolis, Dec. 3, 2009 – The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN), which serves as a primary point of industry contact for disaster relief support, announces that NASSTRAC is its newest industry association partner. Through this new affiliation, NASSTRAC will help support ALAN’s mission to engage the supply chain community to support and assist humanitarian relief efforts. ALAN makes donation needs visible to the logistics industry and establishes an efficient process for providing the necessary goods and services through its web portal, www.ALANaid.org.
Needs for supply chain expertise, products, equipment, and services such as transportation, warehousing and material handling are matched with available donations.
