Storage Overview

Commercial storage is very limited throughout Palau. The main logistics infrastructure is located in Koror, however, there is only a small amount of space available. The largest identified space available is at Malakal port, with space in the port transit warehouse and on Malakal Island, which services the nearby port. Commercial fish processing operations adjacent to the Malakal port include refrigerated and general storage, however, this is a private enterprise and despite its large size, it is not available for general good storage.

There is no usable government warehousing facility. An old facility exists but is used as a yard for unused government vehicles, plants and equipment, and is not recoverable.

There were several warehouses and building structures observed around Koror which could be used as temporary warehousing. The current use of these facilities was not identified or confirmed but they appear suitable for temporary storage if available.

Public Sector Storage

There are no storage facilities or warehouses available through any government departments or public sector agencies. The procurement of items for the government is undertaken through direct purchase from suppliers, which are delivered to end user bases; as such, no government stores are needed or utilised. 

Cold Chain Storage

The only medical cold storage facility in Palau is based at the hospital for the storage of blood. CTSI Logistics operates a cool storage area using air-conditioning in which the temperature can be maintained at a minimum of 16°C.
