Vanuatu Logistics Infrastructure
There are three international airports in Vanuatu, situated in Port Vila, Efate; Luganville, Espirito Santo; and Whitesands, Tanna. It is important to note that there is no fuel depot in Tanna, so aircrafts must have enough fuel for a return journey via a refuelling port if the first porting is Tanna. It is recommended for flights to go via Port Vila or Espirito Santo first where possible.
The two international wharfs in Port Vila and Espiritu Santo are being upgraded to meet increased demands in supplies and tourism. Both wharfs are scheduled for completion in 2017 and will include cargo warehouse facilities.
There is a shortage of warehouse space in Vanuatu. Two disaster warehouses are scheduled to be built by the end of 2017: one of approximately 100m2 in Port Vila, on the corner of wharf road; and a smaller one in Luganville, close to the Provincial Disaster and Climate Change Office.
