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.
