Crisis and Humanitarian Logistics as Opposed to Pandemic Logistics
Purpose: The aim of the article is to differentiate the logistics processes directly connected with pandemics and describing them with a new terminology. Design/Methodology/Approach: Following research methods have been adapted: analysis (disposition of the researched logistics categories), synthesis (matching the parts in a specified structure), generalization (merging the elements into a domain). Findings: The result of the research is isolating a new domain which is pandemic logistics. Practical implications: Implementing the research results will enable to explore, within logistic, a new scientific field which is the concept of supply chains for personal protective equipment, specialistic medical equipment, particular medicaments and most of all vaccines. Originality/ value: A novel value of the crisis situation and crisis logistics theory, humanitarian catastrophe and humanitarian logistics as well as the course of pandemics is to identify and describe the pandemic logistics issues.
