The main purpose of the thesis is to develop an optimal model of Supply Chain Integration for the humanitarian sector, which has not been vigorously explored hitherto. The subject of this paper, in particular, seeks to apply the key assumptions of B-SCI and determine the suitability for the analysis of H-SCI. Therefore, in research field, this will provide useful analytical approaches designed to understand and to transform the quality of modal optimisation in humanitarian SCM and, in practice, help field staff to establish better systems for efficient humanitarian relief operations.
