To more quickly and efficiently respond to disasters around the world, we have greatly expanded our logistical operations. We have now prepositioned emergency aid supplies in strategic bases around the globe. GEM’s Global Headquarters currently oversees five branches. This model alleviates the heavy costs that many organizations with too many chapters have incurred.
We have created a replicable model that is standardized throughout the world.
This gives our donors the confidence that all our global bases operate in the same manner.
This is also a true empowerment model. Our teams in each region are only managed by people from that region. They are the ones who know their country best.
The moment supplies arrive from our donors and strategic corporate partners, they are deployed in our state-of-the-art global WMS software system. We take complete inventory allowing us to categorize, pack and track each piece safely and securely for our monthly KPI’s.
The immediate hours and days following a disaster are critical to saving lives. Our relationships and corporate partners enable us to act quickly after any disaster and move tons of aid into the hardest hit areas around the world in the shortest amount of time possible.
