Logistics in humanitarian context are very complex. On one hand the separate items to be transported are low cost and bulky and on the other hand they are in many cases lifesaving. New technologies and systems can be game changer but must always fit in the specific sector. With regard to accepting innovation, the humanitarian sector is quite different than other sectors. The amount of actors, the different contexts and the strong relation with donors and governments put special constraints during development. Unmanned Air Cargo in Humanitarian context will be a fast upcoming “market/technique/service” that will demand other ethics and cooperation than usual.
