The Applicability of Commercial Supply Chain Models in Humanitarian Supply Chain Thinking

  This research argues that there are a number of potential pitfalls when using traditional commercial supply chain models for humanitarian supply chain issues and it examines the extent to which existing humanitarian supply chain thinking is based on commercial supply chain concepts. The issues and challenges faced by humanitarian supply chains are distinctive, with their own complexities and this paper examines the limitations of existing models and takes a new holistic approach.
