Mobile logistics hubs - Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.96 MB | Download   
Disaster response is very challenging. Logistics hubs play a critical role in improving overall
responsiveness and effectiveness of the humanitarian supply chain; determining their
optimal location contributes to an effective supply chain. The April 2015 Nepal earthquake
highlighted the importance of having in-country mobile logistics hubs, yet the process of
determining their ideal sites has been based on a subjective decision process. This study
aims to determine the best placements for Mobile Logistics Hubs (MLHs) across the country
by considering the disaster scenarios of earthquakes, landslides, and floods. This study
employs the concepts of human development, disaster risk, and transportation accessibility
to reflect Nepal’s socioeconomic, geo-climatic, and topographical features. The study uses
an amalgamation of quantitative and qualitative approaches to determine an optimal
solution for Nepal which has limited resources for investment in disaster preparedness.
It uses a modified version of the maximal covering location problem to determine the
number and location of MLHs and fuzzy factor rating system and fuzzy multi-attribute group
decision-making approach to identify the order of establishment of the MLHs.
