Additional Suppliers Overview

Wholesale suppliers, while few, carry a reasonable range of goods, and comprise the same suppliers outlined in 3.5.1 Food Suppliers.

The local businesses with the ability to import hardware and goods will be the main hardware suppliers and will therefore usually have access to goods required for humanitarian assistance i.e. tents, water pumps, pipes, water tanks, computer / IT equipment, office furniture, etc.

The primary businesses with the capacity to undertake this are ACE Hardware, Masons Hardware and KR Hardware, who have the main existing supply chains in place.

However, and more importantly, no goods are manufactured in Palau and all goods are imported. As such, volumes required (depending on the severity of humanitarian event) are unlikely to be in stock. A minimum two week delay will occur for stock arriving by sea, as Guam, Hawaii and Japan are the origin or transit ports of the regular shipping schedule.

For more information on suppliers’ contact details, please see the following link: 4.9 Additional Suppliers Contact List 

Wholesale

Due to the limited nature of wholesale and retail suppliers in Palau, companies listed in 3.5.1 Food Suppliers are also potential suppliers of products other than food.

Palau has a small but strong supply network in a wide variety of industry sectors. For a comprehensive directory of business suppliers please refer to Annex 5.4 Business Index.
