  Abstract Disasters trigger the need for relief items. The flows of relief items to the beneficiaries in the disaster area are determined by humanitarian logistics networks. The setup and operations of such networks can be supported by employing Operations Research models. Several models, based on different methodologies are available to support decision-making in the field of humanitarian logistics. This work-in-progress analysis suggests a structure of a methodological tool kit for humanitarian logistics. With its help, practitioners in the field of humanitarian logistics should be better equipped to find, compare, and apply available analytical models for their individual decision problem. To serve as an illustration, one OR model is presented in detail according to the proposed structure of the methodological tool kit.
