Warehouse storage throughout Fiji is limited and any available space is centred around Suva and Lautoka on Viti Levu.  Storage on Vanua Levy is limited and poor quality and cannot be relied upon

Emergency warehousing where available can be requisitioned by the Govt through the NDMO in case of a State of Emergency existing. Temporary storage through the use of MSU and containers is the most feasible solution

 In the case of a natural disaster choice of sites may be limited and although the list is not exhaustive the follow site have been identified on the basis of

  •  Proximity to ports for incoming goods shipping
  • Proximity to airports for income good arriving by air
  • Outside of Tsunami prone areas
  • Good connection to King Road and Princess Road as the main axes out of Suva

The survey was not comprehensive but the following attributes were tentatively considered.

  • Security
  • Raised land unless otherwise indicated
  • Access to vehicles
  • Surrounding operating space.
