Immediate & Lasting: Corporate Citizenship through Humanitarian Logistics Support (GoHelp)

When natural disasters strike, the international community bands together. Relief supplies are mobilized and volunteer aid workers from around the world converge on the scene of the disaster. This often leads to bottlenecks at the airports servicing the relief effort. As strategic partner to the United Nations (UN), our GoHelp program provides two types of critical support to these airports. First, as a preventative measure, we prepare airports for future natural disasters. When disaster does strike, we provide immediate emergency aid to ensure that arriving relief supplies are managed efficiently and received by the authorized aid organizations so that the most urgent items can get to the victims on time. Today we are capable of mobilizing 400 DHL volunteers – each one an expert in his or her field.

With our GoHelp program, we contribute our logistics expertise and global logistics network in the service of the UN. This makes us part of a global humanitarian system. We provide all GoHelp services free of charge.
