The Logistics Cluster Global Meetings (GLM) are held twice a year, and bring together Logistics Cluster partners and senior logisticians from humanitarian organisations at the global level. These meetings are a forum for strategic discussion of the Logistics Cluster and provide an opportunity to discuss relevant Logistics Cluster operations, collect feedback from partner organisations on Logistics Cluster performance, present new initiatives and projects relevant to the field of humanitarian logistics.

Introduction to the Note for the Record (NfR)

This Logistics Cluster Global Meeting involved the participation of 67 attendees from a total of 52 organisations. The meeting agenda was developed in collaboration with the Logistics Cluster Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) and based on feedback from the previous meeting. The theme of the meeting as selected by Logistics Cluster partners and the SAG was trends in logistics and supply chain technology. The meeting was facilitated through presentations, discussions and group sessions and included sessions focussed on the current status of implementation of the 2016-18 Strategy, service provision and service providers, an update on the SAG activities since initiation, an in-depth update on two current Logistics Cluster operations and a market please session whereby partners presented on innovative projects and activities their organisations are currently involved in. This Note for the Record (NfR) is organised to reflect the discussions as they took place during the Global Meeting in Leysin and aims to summarise the key discussion points, and actions going forward.
