  • Republic of South Sudan

    The Logistics Cluster, when activated in a sudden onset emergency, is responsible for providing logistics coordination, information management; and, where there is a gap in logistics infrastructure, it acts as a Provider of Last Resort by offering common

    logistics services to support the humanitarian community in their response operations.

    Operations Overview 01 - 28 February 2014

    Access Constraints The on-going conflict is continuing to render many areas inaccessible,

    particularly locations in Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile States.

    All Logistics Cluster river transport ex-Juba continues to be suspended until

    further notice, which is affecting organizations' ability to maintain their fuel

    supplies in Upper Nile State. The port of Juba is currently open however no

    humanitarian organisations are currently travelling on the river due to

    security issues.

    Due to the ongoing insecurity, traditional methods of transport (road and

    river) in many locations have not been viable transport options. As such, the

    humanitarian community is concerned that this will have a negative impact

    on the prepositioning exercise for the 2014 rainy season.

    Logistics Coordination, Information Management (IM) and GIS Logistics Cluster Coordination continues out of Juba. The Logistics Cluster conducted a Coordination Meetings weekly at

    OCHA in Juba on 4, 11, 18, and 25 February, to discuss the logistics needs of partners and identify key gaps. Additionally, a

    field coordination meeting was conducted in Aweil on 18 February held by the Logistics Cluster Focal Point on the ground,

    which will continue on a monthly basis.

    14 information products were published during the reporting period including an Operational Overview, updated UNHAS

    Schedule, Situation Update, Access Constraints Maps, and Meeting Minutes.

    The Logistics Clusters Access Constraints Map was produced three times during the reporting period. The latest Map can

    be found via: http://logcluster.org/map/south-sudan-access-constraints-map-21-february-2014

    The Access Constraints Map is unlikely to have any changes until the onset of the rainy season.

    The revised UNHAS flight schedule was updated and published on 26 February: http://logcluster.org/document/unhas-

    weekly-schedule-effective-1st-march-2014

    The Logistics Cluster published an infographic illustrating the Clusters air lift capacity during the month of January:

    Air Transport The Logistics Cluster continues to support the humanitarian community via airlifts

    (helicopter and fixed wing) transporting relief items throughout the Republic of

    South Sudan.

    Since 01 February, the Logistics Cluster has facilitated the transport of 328mt/

    612m3 of relief items on behalf of 12 organisations (Solidarities, Medair, IMC,

    WFP, Polish Humanitarian Action, UNICEF, World Vision, UNHCR, Save the

    Children, WHO, IRC, and Hold the Child) via 40 flights ex-Juba to Akobo, Bentiu,

    Bunj, Lankien, Malakal, Old Fangak, Pibor, Rubkona, Yida, and Waat.

    The items transported via air included: medical supplies, fuel, operational support, nutrition, education, and WASH supplies.

    The Logistics Cluster facilitated the transport of 5,000 litres of fuel via fixed-wing aircraft (Anontov 32/26) to Bunj on behalf

    of UNHCR, on a cost-recovery basis.

    Due to insecurity, air operations were suspended in Malakal on 17 February till 28 February.

    Storage During the reporting period, the Logistics Cluster set up one 24x10m

    2 Mobile Storage

    Unit (MSU), totalling 240m2

    capacity, in Mingkaman, Lakes State, in order to assist

    organisations responding to the IDP response.

    In Juba, the Logistics Cluster currently has four MSUs erected for interagency use:

    o 2 MSUs are located in the UNMISS IDP camp, Juba Tomping supporting IDP response

    o 1 MSU in Juba Tomping is acting as a cargo transit hub for airlift operations. This

    warehouse provides space for cargo consolidation prior to onward movement via air

    transport out of Juba Airport.

    o 2 MSUs are located at the UNMISS UN House compound supporting IDP response

    In Bentiu, the Logistics Cluster currently has one MSU for interagency storage needs,

    which is currently being managed by WFP.

    Road Transport

    The Logistics Cluster has been providing common road transport in South Sudan via the 13 Common Transport Service (CTS)

    trucks managed by its implementing partner IOM. All these trucks are of 20-25MT capacity and are based in various

    locations around the country, including Malakal, Bentiu, Bor, and Juba.

    During the reporting period, the Logistics Cluster provided road transport to Arkangelo Ali Association, Concern Worldwide,

    GOAL, IMC, Medair, Mercy Corps, Polish Humanitarian Action, Solidarites International, FAO, UNICEF, UNHCR and World

    Vision, facilitating the movement of 209mt/ 292 m3 of inter-agency cargo.

    During the reporting period the CTS fleet was largely non-operational due to the lack of access to the remote locations in

    which the trucks operate. However, via four trucks, which were still operational, the Logistics Cluster provided shunting

    services in Juba, Bentiu, and Malakal. These shunting services were essential in assisting organisations to overcome security

    restrictions in accessing the apron at these locations.

    In order to help fill the logistics gap left by commercial transporters who have ceased to operate in Malakal, the Logistics

    Cluster and IOM are in the process of repositioning the seven CTS trucks stationed in Maban to Malakal. In the meantime,

    the Logistics Cluster is working on alternative logistics solutions until these trucks are able to be relocated.

    Assessments Following the extraction of the IHP humanitarian hub equipment, on 12 February it was redeployed to Mingkaman and

    handed over to the Camp Coordination & Camp Management Cluster (CCCM) where ACTED is taking the lead on

    management on the ground.
