Road Transport

Road Transport

Due to the small size of its islands, land transport is not really developed in Tonga. Trucks are small and family owned. On Togatapu Islands, 2 Private land transport companies can be found at the port and during emergencies, governmental agencies transport capacities (mainly from Transport and Works departments) as well as the ones from TDS, Police and Fire Service will be used. This amounts to a total of approximately 60 x 4 ton trucks.

On the islands of Ha’apai, Vau’a and outer islands transport is done by locals with private vehicles and tractors with trailers.

Current capacity is adequate for the local demand and would likely be able accommodate surge in case of additional humanitarian requirements.
