Range Advantage were involved in the initial training and development of SOPs for the 3 global DRT teams established by DHL as a CSR initiative.

Deutsche Post DHL has sent its disaster response team in Kathmandu, Nepal, following the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that has left thousands of dead and injured.

The team will provide logistics support to help manage the incoming international aid and handle the goods at Tribhuvan Kathmandu International Airport for further distribution by local and international organisation to those in need.

“The massive scale of destruction from the Nepal earthquake has hugely crippled infrastructure and damaged roads and local airports, posing a great logistical challenge towards relief efforts, said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group

“It’s a race against time to rescue those still captured in the debris as well as those in urgent need for critical assistance and amenities like medical help, food and water. The sudden influx of relief goods at Kathmandu airport challenges the local capacities to distribute these goods in a timely manner to reach beneficiaries.

“This is the specific logistics support that our DHL Disaster Response Team will provide at the airport. Our team comprises highly trained volunteers who provide logistical expertise to help coordinate the relief aid at the airport for further distribution to the victims in the speediest manner possible.”

Back in 1993 I set off on an intrepid trek on behalf of the Gurkha Welfare Trust high up into a remote area of the Nepalese Himalayas. I was a Marine Engineer familiar with the challenges the open ocean can present to fragile man made systems. The highest mountain I had climbed was Ben Nevis in Scotland at around 4000 feet. I found myself  in deepest Western Nepal well off the tourist routes accompanied by 4 Nepalese porters. A bit like a character in the old film the Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines I spent the first 3 days simultaneously walking and reading a book entitled 'How to design gravity feed fresh water systems'. Over a month I single handedly surveyed and designed 3 systems for villages with no formal water supply system. 

So what?
