Most of the truck companies with large fleets operate near large cities and are based in the southern part of the Country (port of Pointe Noire and Brazzaville). These companies usually operate nationwide and can usually offer solutions through multimodal transport (i.e. river and road).

There is also a large variety of small scale firms operating with few vehicles usually company owned.

Most of the companies are using vehicles able to circulate on paved roads but have limitations when transporting on bad surfaces.

Transportation costs are expensive and much higher than in neighbouring countries (with exception of CAR). However, price is not the only factor to consider but also vehicle quality, driver experience, feedback from other organisations, knowledge of the region and ability to back up a convoy in difficulty (by sending other trucks) are essential points to examine when hiring a company.

Foreign operators with large fleets are present in Pointe Noire and the Brazzaville area and operate to move mainly containerized, bulk, and bagged cargos from the port of Pointe Noire to Brazzaville and return.
