Vehicle Rental

There is no national branded car rental company in Papua. Most the cars available to rent are private owner/operators. Rates can be negotiated to include a driver and fuel in the overall rental cost.
It should be noted that due to the isolation of Wamena there is a limited supply of private vehicles and access to fuel in the area, therefore it may be difficult to rent a car

Taxi Companies

There is no national branded taxi company in Papua.  Taxis are available at airports and are operated by private owners.

Freight Forwarding Agents

Biak, Jayapura and Merauke have freight forwarders located in their towns.  However it is worth noting that there are no freight forwarding agents in Wamena. The air companies deliver the goods to the airport and it is up to the consignor/consignee to organize the pick-up of their goods. 

Handling Equipment 

Heavy equipment is available for rent as well as sale in the Papua province.  The majority of the companies that rent heavy equipment are based in Jayapura.

Electricity and Power 

Electricity is supplied to several locations throughout the Papua province. Generally, there is no constraints or cuts of services due to capacity issues at the plants. Downtime is generally linked to either maintenance or availability of fuel.
In Jayapura, approximately 85% of households and businesses have access to electricity 24 hours a day. In Biak, the coverage is approximately 70%. In the Biak districts of Waropen, Supiori and Numfor Island the coverage is only 45%. Also, in these districts electricity is limited to between 6 – 12 hours per day.
The fuel for the generators in Wamena is supplied every day from Jayapura by air.
Merauke Town’s electricity coverage is 100 %. Three surrounding sub-districts also benefit of a full coverage - Kurek, Semangga and Tanah Miring. The fuel for electricity in the other districts is supplied by boat (sea/river) from Merauke on a regular basis.
