Handicap International - Humanity & Inclusion
Atlas Logistique is an operational unit of Handicap International – Humanity and Inclusion (HI) that specializes in the delivery of aid. Since 1991, we have been “helping those who help others”, intervening in acute and chronic crises to optimize humanitarian supply chains and open up humanitarian space to the most difficult-to-access populations.
The global development of Handicap International – Atlas Logistique (HI-AL) is one of the major axes of HI’s 2015-2025 strategy. At the end of 2018, a dedicated division and team was created for this purpose. We extended our Programming from 3 to 10 countries of intervention and doubled our operational volume from 4 to 10 million Euros. The deployment of Atlas Logistique has been accompanied by a restructuring of our operations around four pillars: shared transport and storage platforms, logistics analysis, logistics capacity building and civil engineering. They all contribute to positioning HI-AL as a key player in the humanitarian aid access.
Atlas Logistique is looking for a candidate with strong humanitarian leadership and planning capacity. The candidate will animate and coordinate a consortium project implemented with Bioport and the RLH Coop to foster the Ukrainian humanitarian response, at European, Ukraine and neighbouring countries levels. Since the full-scale Russian invasion on the 24th of February, the context in Ukraine is both unpredictable and unusual for humanitarian operators. Due to security and logistics challenges, aid remains complex and difficult to channel. Through the consortium, Bioport, the RLH Cooperative and HI/Atlas Logistique (HI/AL) bring together their expertise in humanitarian logistics. Our services will be offered to aid actors to organise, plan and respond in the most rapid and efficient way to the logistics needs of the aid operators throughout both ends of the supply chain: from France to Ukraine, in neighbouring countries (Moldova, Romania, Poland) and inside Ukraine: • Support and guide logistically French civil society organisations acting in favour of the Ukrainian population; • Provide the humanitarian community with a logistical analysis and information management system via the establishment of an online portal on international access to Ukraine and neighbouring countries; • Provide a contingency of logistical common services from France to Europe and inside Ukraine.
The project aims to be a flexible and agile stand-by capacity at the three levels of the crisis of which all or part of the services will be mobilised according to the evolution of the context, the needs of the humanitarian actors and the available resources. The joint expertise of the three actors in information management and shared logistics will enhance the humanitarian response by facilitating the security and rapidity of aid deliveries.
