LBN/HULO/2024-001, Call for Quotation – Driver Training


The Humanitarian Logistics Cooperative, also known as “HULO”, is the first humanitarian European Cooperative Society (SCE) created in June 2021. 


Hulo’s objective is to increase the impact of humanitarian aid by strengthening links and solidarity between humanitarian logistics actors, as well as by improving performance through the pooling of logistics and supply chain resources and expertise. Hulo's "Joint Initiatives" are already underway in 5 countries (Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, DRC, Lebanon, and the Syrian Crisis) and include on the ground: Joint Procurement Initiatives (JPIs), Joint Human Resources Initiatives (JHRIs), a digital solution for pooling resources, Joint Transport Initiatives (JTIs), and Joint Environmental Initiatives (JEIs). At the global level (i.e., across Headquarters of hulo member organizations), hulo activities focus exclusively on Joint Procurement Initiatives. These initiatives save time and money, improve the quality of goods and services provided, and therefore provide more effective assistance to those who need it most.
