Abstract Global attention to natural disasters has increased over the last few decades. Consequently the cost, not only in financial terms, but also in terms of human lives, of dealing with these disasters has reached astronomical levels. It is not only a concern for governments and NGO; private organisations do also have responsibilities when it comes to dealing with natural disasters. The literature on emergency logistics has identified three main variables such as preparation; risk mitigation; and collaboration. These variables are incorporated into a conceptual model by indicating the possible relationship between them and their drivers to emergency logistics performance.
