Land transportation trucking companies are limited in number in the Papua province. Primarily transporters are “owner/operators” with the ability to sub-contract other trucks if required to meet requirements.
Much of the central highlands in Papua is in-accessible by transport modes other than by air transport. Once in these remote regions the cargo is often moved by smaller 4x4 vehicles.
During an emergency response co-ordination with the Transportation Department will be required to gain access to additional transport capacity from TNI.
For information about sea and air transport modalities, refer to the Waterways, Ports and Airports sections.
