Background

The Logistics Cluster Global Meetings (GLM) are held twice a year, and bring together Logistics Cluster partners and senior logisticians from humanitarian organisations at the global level.

Introduction to the Note for the Record (NfR)

This Logistics Cluster Global Meeting involved the participation of 67 attendees from a total of 52 organisations. The meeting agenda was developed in collaboration with the Logistics Cluster Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) and based on feedback from the previous meeting. The theme of the meeting as selected by Logistics Cluster partners and the SAG was trends in logistics and supply chain technology. The meeting was facilitated through presentations, discussions and group sessions and included sessions focussed on the current status of implementation of the 2016-18 Strategy, service provision and service providers, an update on the SAG activities since initiation, an in-depth update on two current Logistics Cluster operations and a market please session whereby partners presented on innovative projects and activities their organisations are currently involved in. This Note for the Record (NfR) is organised to reflect the discussions as they took place during the Global Meeting in Leysin and aims to summarise the key discussion points, and actions going forward.
