Activated by a request from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), the DRT worked closely with Nepalese authorities, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), numerous governments, aid agencies and NGOs to improve logistics operations at the Tribhuvan Kathmandu International Airport, with one of its first jobs being to clean up the congested tarmac area of relief supplies.

The DRT program falls under DPDHL Group’s GoHelp initiative, a corporate responsibility program which focuses on disaster management. This GoHelp initiative comprises the “Get Airports Ready for Disaster” (GARD) program and natural disaster response via the DRTs. In a partnership with the United Nations (UN) since 2005, DPDHL Group provides the UN with access to its core competence in logistics, its global network and the know-how of its employees free-of-charge.
