Warehouses

UNICEF’s main warehouse is in Copenhagen, but the Division also currently has emergency hubs in Johannesburg, Colon and Dubai to meet the needs of 320,000 people.

Warehouse activities saw another record year in 2005 with throughput up by 8 per cent both in terms of value, weight, volume and number of packs handled. Throughput reached an unprecedented $81.5 million (see table for breakdown). Some 62,000 emergency kits worth approximately $11.6 million were assembled.

In 2005, approximately 8,000 sea and air shipments were managed by Supply Division, including nearly 100 full charter flights
