<ul><li><p>Republic of South Sudan </p><p>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 </p><p>logistics services to support the humanitarian community in their response operations. </p><p>www.logcluster.org/ops/ssd11a </p><p>Operations Overview 01 - 28 February 2014 </p><p>Access Constraints The on-going conflict is continuing to render many areas inaccessible, </p><p>particularly locations in Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile States. </p><p> All Logistics Cluster river transport ex-Juba continues to be suspended until </p><p>further notice, which is affecting organizations' ability to maintain their fuel </p><p>supplies in Upper Nile State. The port of Juba is currently open however no </p><p>humanitarian organisations are currently travelling on the river due to </p><p>security issues. </p><p> Due to the ongoing insecurity, traditional methods of transport (road and </p><p>river) in many locations have not been viable transport options. As such, the </p><p>humanitarian community is concerned that this will have a negative impact </p><p>on the prepositioning exercise for the 2014 rainy season. </p><p>Logistics Coordination, Information Management (IM) and GIS Logistics Cluster Coordination continues out of Juba. The Logistics Cluster conducted a Coordination Meetings weekly at </p><p>OCHA in Juba on 4, 11, 18, and 25 February, to discuss the logistics needs of partners and identify key gaps. Additionally, a </p><p>field coordination meeting was conducted in Aweil on 18 February held by the Logistics Cluster Focal Point on the ground, </p><p>which will continue on a monthly basis. </p><p> 14 information products were published during the reporting period including an Operational Overview, updated UNHAS </p><p>Schedule, Situation Update, Access Constraints Maps, and Meeting Minutes. </p><p> The Logistics Clusters Access Constraints Map was produced three times during the reporting period. The latest Map can </p><p>be found via: http://logcluster.org/map/south-sudan-access-constraints-map-21-february-2014 </p><p> The Access Constraints Map is unlikely to have any changes until the onset of the rainy season. </p><p> The revised UNHAS flight schedule was updated and published on 26 February: http://logcluster.org/document/unhas-</p><p>weekly-schedule-effective-1st-march-2014 </p><p> The Logistics Cluster published an infographic illustrating the Clusters air lift capacity during the month of January: </p><p>http://logcluster.org/sites/default/files/logistics_cluster_southsudan_infographic.pdf </p><p>Air Transport The Logistics Cluster continues to support the humanitarian community via airlifts </p><p>(helicopter and fixed wing) transporting relief items throughout the Republic of </p><p>South Sudan. </p><p> Since 01 February, the Logistics Cluster has facilitated the transport of 328mt/ </p><p>612m3 of relief items on behalf of 12 organisations (Solidarities, Medair, IMC, </p><p>WFP, Polish Humanitarian Action, UNICEF, World Vision, UNHCR, Save the </p><p>Children, WHO, IRC, and Hold the Child) via 40 flights ex-Juba to Akobo, Bentiu, </p><p>Bunj, Lankien, Malakal, Old Fangak, Pibor, Rubkona, Yida, and Waat. </p><p>http://logcluster.org/map/south-sudan-access-constraints-map-21-february-2014http://logcluster.org/document/unhas-weekly-schedule-effective-1st-march-2014http://logcluster.org/document/unhas-weekly-schedule-effective-1st-march-2014http://logcluster.org/sites/default/files/logistics_cluster_southsudan_infographic.pdf</p></li><li><p>Republic of South Sudan </p><p>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 </p><p>logistics services to support the humanitarian community in their response operations. </p><p>www.logcluster.org/ops/ssd11a </p><p> The items transported via air included: medical supplies, fuel, operational support, nutrition, education, and WASH supplies. </p><p> The Logistics Cluster facilitated the transport of 5,000 litres of fuel via fixed-wing aircraft (Anontov 32/26) to Bunj on behalf </p><p>of UNHCR, on a cost-recovery basis. </p><p> Due to insecurity, air operations were suspended in Malakal on 17 February till 28 February. </p><p>Storage During the reporting period, the Logistics Cluster set up one 24x10m</p><p>2 Mobile Storage </p><p>Unit (MSU), totalling 240m2 </p><p>capacity, in Mingkaman, Lakes State, in order to assist </p><p>organisations responding to the IDP response. </p><p> In Juba, the Logistics Cluster currently has four MSUs erected for interagency use: </p><p>o 2 MSUs are located in the UNMISS IDP camp, Juba Tomping supporting IDP response </p><p>o 1 MSU in Juba Tomping is acting as a cargo transit hub for airlift operations. This </p><p>warehouse provides space for cargo consolidation prior to onward movement via air </p><p>transport out of Juba Airport. </p><p>o 2 MSUs are located at the UNMISS UN House compound supporting IDP response </p><p> In Bentiu, the Logistics Cluster currently has one MSU for interagency storage needs, </p><p>which is currently being managed by WFP. </p><p>Road Transport </p><p> The Logistics Cluster has been providing common road transport in South Sudan via the 13 Common Transport Service (CTS) </p><p>trucks managed by its implementing partner IOM. All these trucks are of 20-25MT capacity and are based in various </p><p>locations around the country, including Malakal, Bentiu, Bor, and Juba. </p><p> During the reporting period, the Logistics Cluster provided road transport to Arkangelo Ali Association, Concern Worldwide, </p><p>GOAL, IMC, Medair, Mercy Corps, Polish Humanitarian Action, Solidarites International, FAO, UNICEF, UNHCR and World </p><p>Vision, facilitating the movement of 209mt/ 292 m3 of inter-agency cargo. </p><p> During the reporting period the CTS fleet was largely non-operational due to the lack of access to the remote locations in </p><p>which the trucks operate. However, via four trucks, which were still operational, the Logistics Cluster provided shunting </p><p>services in Juba, Bentiu, and Malakal. These shunting services were essential in assisting organisations to overcome security </p><p>restrictions in accessing the apron at these locations. </p><p> In order to help fill the logistics gap left by commercial transporters who have ceased to operate in Malakal, the Logistics </p><p>Cluster and IOM are in the process of repositioning the seven CTS trucks stationed in Maban to Malakal. In the meantime, </p><p>the Logistics Cluster is working on alternative logistics solutions until these trucks are able to be relocated. </p><p>Assessments Following the extraction of the IHP humanitarian hub equipment, on 12 February it was redeployed to Mingkaman and </p><p>handed over to the Camp Coordination &amp; Camp Management Cluster (CCCM) where ACTED is taking the lead on </p><p>management on the ground. </p></li></ul>
