Abstract

During serious disasters most of the telecommunication and other usual channels of mass communications get severely disturbed/damaged, which makes things worse for disaster management. Though lot of relief material pour in from different quarters, from organised as well as un-organised sectors and sources, administration find it challenging supplying the right thing to right (needy) person at the right time. Information on logistics being critical, during those very critical days, the paper looks at various issues and challenges relating to 'Logistics Information System', using IT-applications.
