  Abstract The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC), is one of the many humanitarian organizations that are further developing their logistics network more decentralized structures with sub-regional networks. One of the main challenges identified is the need of monitoring tools to have a real-time overview of the whole logistics network state, and optimization of the associated operations through real-time decision support systems. Logistics departments of humanitarian organizations have not adopted the technological developments that are standard in the commercial sector due to critical differences, and the IFRC is not an exception. This paper presents a case study conducted with the American and Caribbean IFRC. We present user requirements and specifications for the design of a real-time monitoring system dedicated the sub-regional network. It particularly addresses the challenges to simplify remote data collection, visualization and analysis.
