project44 Joins Top Global Supply Chain Executives to Sign New Humanitarian Charter

The new Charter dedicated to humanitarian supply chain resistance was announced during the 2022 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Other signatories include leaders from A.P. Møller-Maersk, Lufthansa, and UPS.

During its annual meeting in Switzerland, the World Economic Forum, in partnership with UNICEF, announced the Supply Chain & Transport Industry Charter for Humanitarian Supply Chain Resilience. project44 joins 14 other supply chain and transport leaders from around the globe as an initial signatory, committing to build inclusive, sustainable, and resilient supply chains that can withstand disruptions to effectively distribute relief and aid in the wake of a crisis.

The initial signatories also include leaders from A.P. Møller-Maersk, CMA CGM Group, DP World, Deutsche Post DHL Group, DSV, UPS, and Lufthansa. project44 is also the only modern technology partner on the list.

Since 2020, the effects of supply chain gaps have been felt around the world. While many disruptions caused the delay of a new piece of furniture or exercise equipment, those same events kept necessary medical supplies and equipment from reaching our most vulnerable populations around the world.

Members of the WEF charter recognize that multinational companies, governments, and humanitarian organizations must work together to solve these problems and respond to future supply chain disruptions and ensure that essential supplies are continually available to provide humanitarian aid. These leaders will also work to share information and resources, where possible, to address bottlenecks and fill in the gaps in humanitarian supply chains.

Since its inception, project44’s mission has been to “make supply chains work” and we are honored to do our part to ensure those in crisis receive the aid they need. We look forward to working alongside the members of this initiative to make a global impact and lend a hand to those who need it most.
