Our Approach to Disaster Response


Agility always works in partnership with humanitarian organizations, and always at their invitation.

Emergency Response

Agility donates both logistics expertise in the form of our logisticians, as well as in-kind support like transport or warehousing services for relief supplies.

Disaster Preparedness

Agility also supports disaster preparedness activities like logistics capacity assessments of major ports, airports, and roads, as well as humanitarian logistics training.

Highlighted Humanitarian Projects

Agility moved 150,000 bars of soap across the country for a global consumer goods company that donated soap to humanitarian organizations in Indonesia, including UNICEF, as part of its COVID-19 response. Watch how our team navigated geographic complexities and lockdown measures.

Humanitarian Operations

In coordination with the Dewan Kampung Maju Jaya, a local non-profit organization in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, Agility employees procured and distributed essential household items to 15 families (60 people) affected by floods. The food baskets included sugar, salt, cooking oil, canned food, rice, soap, and detergent, among other goods.

Humanitarian Operations

Agility Bangladesh volunteers participated in a Customs Workshop organized by the UN Logistics Cluster in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. This training helps humanitarians to reduce the time that humanitarian cargo is in transit, which reduces inventory requirements and operating costs, while increasing the amount of aid materials available to beneficiaries. The Agility Bangladesh team also supported the Logistics Cluster by helping them to prepare a Logistics Capacity Assessment (LCA) for the country, and by working with local government, private sector and NGO stakeholders in a country-wide preparedness project to help the country prepare for future humanitarian emergencies.

Humanitarian Operations

For the second year in a row, Agility provided humanitarian fleet operations training to 25 representatives from 13 different humanitarian partners in Beirut, Lebanon. This training helps humanitarian partners better manage transportation fleets so more humanitarian cargo can be safely and more efficiently delivered to people in need. It also helps humanitarians reduce their operating costs and deliver more assistance when people most need it.

Humanitarian Operations

Agility and its portfolio company, United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC), have teamed up to run a charitable meal program during Ramadan. In coordination with the Kuwait Food Bank, 17 volunteers from Agility and UPAC donated their time to help feed more than 20,000 individuals through a daily Iftar meal program and a Machla donation box distribution.

Humanitarian Operations

As part of UNHCR’s Ramadan campaign, Agility ran an internal fundraising drive. Employees in six Middle Eastern countries donated to UNHCR, ultimately supporting 14 refugee families (or approximately 70 individuals) during the Holy Month of Ramadan. The funds raised were channeled through UNHCR’s Cash Assistance program, which enables refugees to procure the food and life support essentials they need to survive. UNHCR cash assistance also contributes to the local economy and reduces refugee exploitation through forced & child labor, sex trafficking, family separation and forced marriage.

Humanitarian Operations

Agility donated a 20-foot refrigerated shipping container to the UN Global Logistics Cluster to enable humanitarian organizations to store cholera medication to help protect the Rohingya refugees who have fled Myanmar and living in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

Humanitarian Operations

Following the flood in Kerala, an Agility employee was among these first responders, traveling nearly 35 km to bring his boat and assist local citizen rescue teams to help save the lives of more than 50 individuals affected by the flooding; venturing into pockets where even state deployed personnel could not reach.
