Storage Used by Humanitarian Organizations

Maputo is the location where most organisations maintain central warehouses due to its capital city status and presence of suppliers, transporters and main logistics infrastructure including sea-port, international airport and the cargo terminals for customs clearance of items originating from South Africa. The Logistics Cluster participants warehouses are generally small structures, scattered around the two provinces and they are often in locations that are not well connected to major roads. This leaves little opportunity for logistics augmentation purposes unless an emergency occurs in a very specific area. Consequently, only a few of the paticipants warehouses could be used as intermediate warehouses in emergencies (e.g. Save the Children has an 800 mt facility in Xai-Xai)

In Gaza and Inhambane there are MSU’s with a storage capacity for food of 3,600 mt. Each MSU has a floor area of 320 m² with a potential capacity of about 1,300 m³. They can be transferred relatively easily from one location to another to meet changing operational requirements. There is currently one MSU in Maputo, 3 in the Gaza Province and 5 in Inhambane Province, whichcan be positioned at response areas, as required. In addition, MSU’s could be moved from the Central Region to the Sou. WFP has 7 MSU’s in stock in Moçambique… 1 are in Maputo and 6 are in Beira
