There are no dedicated road transport companies in FSM

Only the main state capitals have any significant length of road. In the outer islands few vehicle roads exist. The main transport mode is by sea providing interisland transport.

On Each main state island there are 1-2 retail wholesale super market outlets who have small 2-3 Mt trucks and in each state the Department of Transport and Public works have trucks predominantly for road construction. Very few large rigid deck vehicle exist and there are no flat deck articulated vehicles/semi trainers.

CTSI Logistics who operate in each state providing transport, handling and delivery for freight services form the ports and airports have a small fleet 2-4 vehicles in each state. Vehicles are 2-4MT trucks

Each state Seaport however owns or operates container chassis trailers which could on an adhoc basis be used. There is however a major limitation on the numbers of prime mover/tractors available to tow the trailers with only 1-2 in each state.

Pick ups and small 2MT trucks are the most common cargo vehicle used. Generally these consist of 1 MT pickups and 2 MT 2wd trucks being the most common.
