Nonprofits have the crucial task of collecting and distributing food, medical equipment, supplies, and clothing . All of which requires complex distribution-intense capabilities.

Often, nonprofits are at the forefront of humanitarian work, but the pandemic and broader supply chain disruptions have impeded their ability to deliver critical services.

Which is why the Supply Chain Project focuses exclusively on enabling nonprofits to leverage the capabilities and solutions that any successful distribution effort must deploy.

Founder Steve Robinson Quote: (Former Starbucks, Walmart, Blue Yonder, One Network exec.) “Our focus is to take the best from the for-profit supply chain world and marry it with the best of the nonprofit arena to create solutions that evens the playing field for Nonprofits.. Today no NGO is too small or too big to benefit from an improved supply chain ”

Co-Founder Carol Wylie Quote (formerly the Vice President of Corporate Engagement for World Vision) shared recently that ”improving and streamlining supply chain activities is critical to non-profit organizations. Simplifying work, streamlining operations, and professionalizing services allow non-profits to spend more of their scarce resources on their mission.

The TSCP.org team supports initiatives aimed at helping nonprofits collect and distribute goods and services. The growth of Ecommerce has created historic levels of waste. Thus TSCP engages corporate donors to repurpose waste in exchange for tax advantages. It also seeks companies with idle delivery equipment and available warehousing capacity to donate “in kind services” so that nonprofits can leverage logistical help when needed.

Small local to large global NGOs, can register interest in obtaining support on the TSCP Website. The TSCP team selects the organizations it can work with and seeks to understand their needs before crafting a service plan.

As a Logistics Solution Provider The Supply Chain Project has assembled an impressive slate of technology solutions all aimed at enabling the digital transformation of nonprofits who have historically needed more tech.

Deployment starts with an internal app store where nonprofits can find basic technology solutions that can be affordably and readily deployed, like a multi-tenant cloud-based inventory management system. This solution provides real-time inventory data and supports operations like receiving, moving, adjusting inventory, and shipping. End users can also manage perishable food by expiration and best by dates and check temperature control requirements.

In 2019, The Supply Chain Project, through the efforts of Founder Steve Robinson, joined forces with a large international NGO in Rwanda that contracted with a local supplier to purchase 9 million malaria testing kits from Abbott Diagnostics in South Korea. TSCP facilitated the global trade through its network of logistics partners as the nonprofit faced various issues, from shipping, customs clearance, warehouse storage, and last-mile delivery. The TSCP team partnered with one of its portfolio companies Kountble, and found a local distributor in Rwanda, enabling them to use the platform while engaging with one of its financial partners on payment issues. The Supply Chain Project brought together its network of global experts and logistics partners to deliver over 9 million malaria test kits to Rwanda.
