We make it a priority to extend our logistics expertise beyond the traditional supply chain. When a disaster strikes, we are there--providing philanthropic dollars, logistics know-how, transportation assets, and passionate and skilled global employees to lend a helping hand. With the help of the UPS Foundation, the philanthropic arm of UPS established by founder Jim Casey in 1951, we collaborates with partner organizations to provide urgent response relief to those in need.
CARE is an international humanitarian relief organization with a mission to relieve extreme poverty, and Aidmatrix applies supply chain management technologies to help organizations deliver goods, money, and services to conflicted regions and areas hit by natural disasters.
"We have logisticians that have accompanied CARE to far-flung locations in the world where they operate," says Eduardo Martinez, president of The UPS Foundation. "In the area of preparedness, we have been able to develop technologies that help CARE track their commodities more effectively so they can more efficiently run their supply chain."
UPS helped CARE implement a software system, built and powered by The Aidmatrix Foundation, that tracks global projects and supplies.
