There is a lack of permanent storage capacity in South Sudan and the majority of storage solutions are provided through temporary and mobile storage units. The humanitarian community constitutes the largest sector with available warehouse space and most organisations have storage facilities in Juba and most other major towns.

The commercial sector has taken advantage of this gap and an ever-growing number of warehouses are present in major towns. Cold Chain remains problematic with the capital outlay and risks associated with such endeavours limiting growth in this sector. A number of commercial operators however are currently developing their capacity to provide a complete cold chain solution.

Storage Used by Humanitarian Organizations

All major humanitarian organisations have access to their own storage facilities and warehouse management is mostly conducted in-house. Many organisations also make use of commercial storage. In smaller locations and where the presence and size of  humanitarian actors vary it is common for organisations to share storage space and in some instances smaller organisations rely almost entirely on other organisations for storage.

Through the common storage service, the Logistics Cluster has access to more than 6,700m2 of warehouse space in more than 19 locations across the country. This storage space is made available to the humanitarian community either to augment their current capacity or serve as dedicated storage space on a short-term basis free of charge.

Public Sector Storage

The government has access to a number of warehouse facilities however these facilities are not readily made available to the humanitarian community. In some instances the government is able to provide or allocate storage space to the humanitarian community however access to this space needs to be negotiated for directly with the relevant line ministry.  Additional storage space can also be negotiated for through the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission for those organisations involved in emergency response. 

Cold Chain

Cold Chain remains problematic with the capital outlay and risks associated with such endeavours limiting growth in this sector. A number of commercial operators however are currently developing their capacity to provide a complete cold chain solution.
