Humanitarian logistics (HL) is an emerging field of research since the frequency and severity of disasters and the number of people in need is continuously increasing. And because of this fact proper planning is getting more crucial. Efficiency is another important issue when it comes to disaster relief operations. Keeping these operations efficient is the key to successful implementation and therefore technology usage is essential. In this study, a framework is proposed to benefit from the technology and volunteers for HL. This study emphasizes the role of technology and people for more efficient humanitarian logistics.
