Various vehicles (10 mt to 33 mt tonnage capacity) are used in Nepal as the means of heavy transport. The current estimate of the number of trucks in Nepal is approximately 26,000. While most of the truck transport companies have low numbers of trucks, there are some companies with larger fleets.  The Nepal Truck Owners Association is active and, according to reports, plays a role setting transport rates.

Because truck transport is the main method of transport in Nepal for all goods, there is a good support infrastructure in place for the servicing and repair of trucks. Spare parts are readily available. The supply of trucks to meet the national transport demands is adequate.
