use and meaning of "one of"

The Managing Director of Dhaka Wasa has said that this is a common scenario during the dry season since deep tube wells malfunction during the time. If this trend is known, then the question is, why adequate preparation was not taken ahead of time to deal with it? The MD has himself stated that there has been no reduction in water production. So the problem must be one of logistics rather than one of supply. We understand that Wasa itself has infrastructural constraints. But, given the seriousness of this not so uncommon crisis, and the fact that it is the socially vulnerable that suffer the most, we demand Wasa deals with it with the importance such an issue deserves. Better management of logistics could ease the suffering, if not fully eradicate it.


All this sentences have been taken from Water crisis in the city.


It is a link of a news. I would like to draw attention on a sentence. The sentence is So the problem must be one of logistics rather than one of supply.

What may happen if I omit one of and write this sentence in the following way?

So the problem must be logistics rather than supply.

Actually I can understand the use of one of in this case. I would be happy if anyone would explain it.

Thanks in advance!
