Tomasini & Van Wassenhove(2009)提出了私营部门作为一个重要的参与者的作用和贡献。私营部门是社会的重要组成部分，人道主义援助来自世界各地，在救济行动中包括它们是有意义的。已经发生的一些合作是与TNT和WFP项目一起使用的，还有DHL、联邦快递和敏捷。这种私营部门的支持比仅仅提供财政援助更加经济和积极的支持。DHL和FedEx团队亲自参与了在黎巴嫩的人道主义援助工作。私营部门的支持可以加快药品的支助、住房和电信的需求，并支持对前端的人道主义救济援助提供者的支持。私营部门可以在消除救济援助规定方面发挥很大的作用，当他们被邀请并在世界各地的许多这样的事件中作出更大的贡献。Tatham & Houghton(2011)建议使用具有竞争力、权威性和协作性的策略，以提供更多的投入到实施和战略准备援助。竞争战略可能来自于对过去失败、评估失败和交付失败的积极分析。这些都为我们如何提高效率和如何灵活地采用每一个新机会提供了深刻的见解。权威的策略可以提供更多的洞察，多部门的干预可以降低交付效率和员工生产力。这些提供了更多的洞察，以有效的混合和利用每个利益相关者的内在核心竞争力的机会。即使在困难时期，协作策略也很重要，它能让利益相关者团结在一起，让所有成员都专注于解决方案和最终结果，而不是把时间浪费在扩大分歧上，而不是把更多的精力放在自己的立场上。不同利益相关者之间的协作对于有效地提供救济援助至关重要，因为供应链的生存和运营只依赖于供应链中节点强度的扩展。
Tomasini & Van Wassenhove (2009) put forward the role and contribution of the private sector as an important actor. The private sector is an essential part of society and with the humanitarian aid coming from across the globe, and it makes sense to include them in the relief actions. Some of the collaborations that have taken place is with TNT and WFP programs along with DHL, FedEx, and Agility. This private sector support has been more financially and active support type than just being a financial aid. The DHL and FedEx teams had personally involved themselves in the efforts of humanitarian aid in Lebanon. Private sector support can expedite medicine support, shelter and telecommunication requirements, and back office support to the front end leading humanitarian relief aid providers. Private sector can play a large role in eliminating all kinds of disparities in relief aid provision, when they are invited and made a larger contributory party in many such events across the world. Tatham & Houghton (2011) suggested the use of competitive, authoritative, and collaborative strategies that can provide more inputs into the operative and strategically preparation of aid provision. Competitive strategies can come from vigorously analysing past failures, assessment failure, and delivery failure. These provide a deep insight into how one can improve their efficiency and the way every new opportunity can be adopted flexibly. Authoritative strategies can provide more insight into how over intervention by multiple authorities can reduce delivery efficiency and employee productivity. These provide more insight into effective intermixing and using opportunities of each stakeholder’s inherent core competencies. Collaborative strategies are important in bonding the stakeholders together even in difficult times, and keeps all members focused on the solution and end result of delivery rather than wasting time on enlarging differences by stressing more on their own stand. Collaboration between different stakeholders is essential in effective delivery of relief aid, as the supply chain’s survival and operations is dependent only on the thriving an extension of the strength of the nodes within the supply chain.
