Helping Non-Profits Find The Logistics Equipment, Expertise And Services They Need
Logistics Compassion In Action
Donations like these were made possible because ALAN was there to make a connection – and because a generous member of the logistics community (like you) said “Yes.”

Hurricane Florence: What Can We Do Post Hurricane
It’s been several days since Hurricane Florence made landfall in the Carolinas. And by now, we had hoped to be able to offer some reassuring news along the lines of “thankfully it didn’t turn out to be as bad as people were predicting” or “the worst is over.”
But unfortunately, that’s not the case. In fact, if you look at the various images, it’s overwhelming – because there are many aftereffects like flooding that we can’t do anything about.
That’s the bad news.
But here’s the good news: Over the past few days, ALAN has continued to hear from numerous people like you who are ready, willing and anxious to help, and who continue to ask, “What can we do?”
ALAN has a few specific answers to that question already: There are numerous requests for warehousing on our micro-site that we are still trying to fill and that we could truly use your help with. (And more are arriving every day.) So if you have space that you’re willing to donate – or you know of someone who does – please, check it out.
We’ll also have many more specific answers in the coming weeks, because as Florence’s flood waters begin to recede, our relief partners will need help getting items to and from impacted areas, which is when we expect donated services like transportation to become especially critical. With that in mind, we ask that you continue visiting our micro-site often, because even though the storm has passed, we will need your help for a long time to come.
