One question about logistics in disaster management

Points of Distribution (POD) can be extremely beneficial in disaster situations. They can also create concerns during an operation in regards to transporting supplies, safety, security and finding an optimum site for establishing a POD.

Over the years this process has become more formalized, and has been perfected by many agencies. A POD serves many purposes. It obviously distributes supplies- often food, water, ice, blankets.
