The Logistics Cluster was activated in Nepal on 27 April 2015 and has been operating in support of the humanitarian community for one year, until 30 April 2016, after gradual phasing out of the operation.
During this operation the Logistics Cluster supported 161 organisations: 84 coordination meetings were held and 351 Information Management products produced and published.
In addition the Logistics Cluster facilitated access to common logistics services. Cluster coordinated services included cargo handling for a total of 89,248 m³, and the storage facilities for a total capacity of 9,040 m².
Finally, the Logistics Cluster supported the Remote Access Operation (RAO), which delivered 1,681 mt of Food and Non-Food items to isolated communities employed over 22,000 people and rehabilitated 900 km of trails.
