NOREPS - Stockpiling
NOREPS relies on the availability of suitable products and services. NOREPS partner companies commit to stock approved products and to deliver them to an international airport within 24 hours of request from their own premises in Norway.
NOREPS’s product stocks ensure the ready availability of essential goods. The fact that a wide range of products are kept at each warehouse/depot enables the efficient and cost-effective dispatch of a range of vital items at the same time. Partners replace products immediately.
NOREPS partners also maintain stocks of essential products at depots run by the UN, the Red Cross and NGOs. The main depots are located in Norway, Brindisi (Italy) and Dubai with the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot - UNHRD. Further UNHRD-depots are maintained in disaster prone areas in Subang, Malaysia, Accra, Ghana and Panama.
