Palau does not have any dedicated transport companies, and relies on local private companies who are involved in the ports, in construction, and in the retail sector throughout Palau. Transport assets are limited to smaller construction-type rigid chassis flat beds and tipper bodies. Additionally, there are dedicated container units for the delivery and movement of containers to and from the port. Since these are private companies using the vehicles, they would be negotiated on a case by case basis, as, and when required. CTSI Logistics are freight forward clearing agents, who, while they only have a few vehicles themselves, are able to locate vehicles for additional use outside of their fleet.

The Department of Public Works also maintains a fleet of construction and service-type vehicles, ranging from flat deck to tipper rigid vehicles. As government-owned vehicles, they are, and have been made available during times of emergency.

The larger companies include the port operations Belau Transit and Transfer Co (BTTC), Sarangal, and WCTC. BTTC and Western Caroline Trading Company (WCTC) are both multi-sectorial businesses with retail and construction operations. Transport assets in both companies are from their construction businesses so tend to be construction specific vehicles.   

There are also a number of smaller single operators who have 1-4 mt trucks available for hire for local use.
