This chapter defines the field of Disaster Response Logistics (DRL) and provides a comprehensive overview of the wide range of emergency functions that are performed as part of DRL. Using this classification of emergency functions, the authors identify the emergency functions where supply chain and operations management could play an important role. Then, the authors proceed to outline the corresponding research needs. The resulting set of research needs provide guidance to new entrants to disaster response logistics, and to individuals interested in exploring under-studied subjects, about areas where research is lacking.
