Abstract

In the view of the issues faced by humanitarian organizations to deliver beneficiaries in an effective, efficient and sustainable manner, the Physical Internet (PI) approach offers potential as an appropriate solution. Indeed, its high resilience, adaptability, efficiency and sustainability capabilities are attractive yet need to be proved as relevant and suitable for the humanitarian sector. Based on this consideration, it is judicious to assess the potential benefits of introducing Physical Internet concepts to humanitarian organizations and demonstrate the impact on performance. In this perspective, this paper proposes a methodology to organize such an investigation as well as some first experimental illustrations to present the approach and to highlight early positive insights.
