Here I found an article which talks about the earthquake in Haiti related to humanitarian logistics. The writer of the article says “We usually discuss pooling of inventory, but this seems to be a case where spreading inventory makes a lot of sense.” We understand inventory pooling as the consolidation of multiple inventory location into a single one, but as the writer says and I think he reaches an interesting conclusion in this sentence, there are situations in which spreading inventory would have helped a lot.
It made me think a lot. Hope you read it and you find it interesting too.
