Hurricane Recovery, Supply Chain Challenges In U.S. Island Territories

U.S. island territories and areas non-contiguous to the mainland face great logistical challenges when struck by major disasters: How can organizations involved in recovery operations procure the contracting services and procure and transport unprecedented amounts of materials needed to rebuild infrastructure? The aim of this research is to identify key challenges in supply chains that could slow or otherwise disrupt recovery efforts and to offer recommendations to ease these constraints.
