Track: Supply Chain Management (SCM)

The evaluation and measurement of the impact and efficiency of supply chains in the management of social problems have become one of the areas that currently demands immediate attention, and that includes the implementation of humanitarian logistics actions; all due to the role played by factors such as economic performance and social sustainability that allow work on the design of government strategies and policies in order to address the problems faced by those communities in vulnerable situations. In this article, through a case study, a proposal is presented based on the identification of the vulnerable population with high levels of marginalization, analyzing the routes and infrastructure available for distribution, and calculating the real distances of movement between locations, to finally describe some models for locating facilities based on qualitative techniques.

The objective of this work was to make a proposal for the design of a facility location model considering qualitative and quantitative variables as a basis for applying a facility location model in humanitarian logistics. The results of this proposal allow the identification and select common characteristics in the target population to design the distribution network, allowing to determine those strategies that should be implemented in humanitarian logistics.
