Although there are a few single vehicle transport operators, one major company dominate the road transport market. Cook Islands General Transport Ltd (CIGT). The relatively small size of the market and expense of importing heavy transport equipment to the islands serves to discourage other small operators from entering. The current capacity of equipment is sufficient to serve domestic requirements and would be sufficient to meet a modest surge demand given the country’s small scale. Generally the equipment on hand is modern and well maintained. There is very little impact from unions in the country; the overriding impediment to foreign operators arriving is geographical isolation.  

The outer Islands have sufficient transport options, small trucks and the Island Councils’ heavy machinery, to meet their domestic requirements.
