SHELTER BOX 2
Discussion questions
Question 1: What are the key operations and logistics issues faced by ShelterBox?”
Custom clearance, despite the ability of ShelterBox in making judgement which is sound
involving equipment and its appropriateness to deploy and to which families they are going to
deliver to, they are hindered from easy transfer of materials across borders, mostly international.
Inefficient custom clearance procedures hinder humanitarian aid relief work. Their time on the
ground is short, the time taken for clearance is wastage, delays and rejections prevent an
emergency relief aid reaching the affected individuals. The import duty for relief aid has
undetermined rates which varies in different countries (Tatham & Christopher, 2018).
Question 2: Discuss the Global Sourcing concepts at work in this case? Are there
inefficiencies, efficiencies, opportunities?
Labor-There are volunteers from different places in the world becoming ShelterBox response
team members, volunteering at the headquarters of ShelterBox in UK, conducting worldwide
fundraising events, publicizing ShelterBox to raise awareness?
Donations- They used the donations and buy relief aid equipment, the equipment in a standard
ShelterBox include a Shelter box blankets, tent and basic tools to provide the children materials
which would help them with their education and also recreational activities.
The efficiency they have been able to gain is that they have been successful in getting volunteers
to help in their relief aid work.
The inefficiency they have encountered is that some donors earmark the donations they make
which is tracking the boxes they have funded.
The Scout Association has helped in developing global partnerships and awareness. This has
provided opportunities for people to join and help the organization.
