The transport sector in Haiti is marked by the fact that most of the providers only own small fleets; and many times outsource transports to other private owners. Trucks available are not always well kept and services can then become insecure. Losses are often registered, also due to security situations. Traffic accidents are also common. Even if enough transporters are registered for the Port-au-Prince area, it's difficult to find adequate services in the regions were minimum acceptable standards are not always met. WFP uses private assessed transporters (list attached), and also its fleet of off road trucks, because many locations are inaccessible for local providers. The WFP fleet consists of 27 off-road 4x4 trucks capable of 8mt, and a fleet of 50 old military M6 trucks parked in stand-by to respond to eventual emergencies.
