Inauguration of the Foundation's new logistics platform

In February 2011, the Veolia Foundation's logistics platform is established in the southern suburb of Paris, Massy.

The 1500 square meter hall stores the emergency and development related equipment for the Foundation's humanitarian efforts around the world. The platform plays a crucial role, since it manages the logistics for all equipment dispatched to the various missions around the world.

In 2010 for example, following the earthquake disaster in Haïti, the Foundation sent over almost 20 tons of material by cargo plane. This allowed Veoliaforce volunteers in the field to supply drinkable water to thousands of people.

To increase mission efficiency and decrease response time, the Foundation also installed logistics platforms in Asia and Latin America. Veoliaforce volunteers in the countries within these regions were trained and are ready to help.
