metadata.conference.dc.description.abstract: This paper demonstrates the challenges faced by humanitarian logistics relief team in rescuing the flood victims during floods. Flood is a disaster that commonly happened in Malaysia and this disaster can become chaotic and panic if handled improperly. The objective of this paper is to assess the challenges in humanitarian logistics relief mission during flood. To achieve the objective, semi-structure interview with six humanitarian logistics relief team has been conducted; two are from police, two from fire brigade and two from civil defense. The result from interview reveal that the factors that made the humanitarian logistics relief mission during flood inefficient are bound to three factors which are lack of emergency response transport and equipment, vulnerability of road network and attitude of flood victims. This study thus recommend that the government can add more budget to buy more equipment and emergency transport vehicle and educate by giving more awareness to public on the dangerous of flood to people and what should be done if they think the flood is going to be happened, without only hoping for the humanitarian logistics relief team to come and save them.
