LogIE is a tool that changes the way we are collecting, analysing and sharing humanitarian logistics information. The tool has been designed for and by humanitarian logistics responders to improve coordination, information sharing and the quantity and quality of the data available in emergency response and preparedness.
Humanitarian response relies heavily upon dynamic supply chain systems. But often, the critical data needed to make conscious, timely and effective decisions is not available at the speed or reliability required by humanitarian responding agencies.
The Logistics Cluster Information Exchange platform (LogIE) seeks to change this.
LogIE allows the users to share relevant logistics information through an easy-to-use interface. The data, after being processed, is displayed in a multi-layer map, combining different layers of information. The tool facilitates the display and analysis of both the logistics and geographical information in a single map and users can customize the selection of layers according to their specific needs.
Data and information sharing is a fundamental pillar of the Logistics Cluster’s 2022-2026 Strategy and is based – as the entire operational framework of the Logistics Cluster – on the participation and leadership of a broad community of humanitarian stakeholders, private sector and academia.
LogIE aims to become an information gateway for logistics preparedness and response through the provision of state-of-the-art data processing, validation, and automation technology.
The tool is driven by collaboration and localisation, integrating both existing data – and those crowdsourced directly from the field – to create an operational picture for global and local humanitarian partners. And by doing so, increase information sharing and ultimately, ensure aid gets to where it needs to go faster.
LogIE interlinks systems, integrating information processes and directing crowdsourced data and reports from the field directly into a common information gateway.
All information submitted to the LogIE system goes through a validation process. If necessary, edits are made, and follow-up enquiries take place, to ensure reliability of information. The system also pulls on existing data sources at the national and local level, to ensure all information is available in the same location.
All information gathered and validated can be then consumed through lightweight websites interfaces and API data streams.
