3.2 Tuvalu Transporters

With a total distance of 15km end to end on the main island of Funafuti and the outer islands lacking roading infrastructure there is no need and consequently no road transport operators in the country. 

Small flat deck trucks (3-5MT) or utility vehicles are used to transport imported goods unpacked directly from containers at the port and the Public Works Department have two 10MT dump trucks for moving aggregate or similar loads and a 10MT flat deck with Hi-ab lifting crane. 

Given the small area of the island there are sufficient trucks to transport current requirements and to cope with surge demands.
