Together we are Stronger

The first humanitarian cooperative connecting actors and pooling resources to optimize logistics & supply chain

How can I increase the impact of humanitarian operations ?

Humanitarian needs are increasing at an alarming rate while funding is failing to keep pace.
With supply chain expenditure of more than €6bn yearly across the main actors of the aid sector, there is a duty to maximise efficiency, reduce the environmental impact and remove duplications.
We believe that the humanitarian sector is at a turning point in how it manages its resources, we must change our ways of working and innovate “together”.

To succeed, we created Hulo, the first shared-service & data-driven cooperative designed by aid organisations for aid organisations.

Who we are

To accomplish their missions, aid organisations perform the same tasks and meet the same challenges. It makes us compete on the wrong ground : the supply chain. While some levels of competition are important to preserve the diversity of actors and foster continuous improvement, it is also imperative that collaborative practices are developed simultaneously to make logistics more efficient.

The concept of helping each NGO deliver its HUmanitarian aid through a more efficient united LOgistics became obvious. Say hello to Hulo!


The Reseau Logistique humanitaire (RLH) was created as a consortium of INGOs wanting to increase the impact of aid through a more integrated logistics.
