WFP strives to use commercial providers where land transport is required, however sometimes WFP must depend on its own fleet of all-terrain trucks, which are best prepared to steer the toughest road conditions.

Nearly 800 heavy-duty trucks make up WFP’s worldwide fleet along with around 35 repair workshops, which are strategically positioned and equipped with qualified staff and maintenance equipment should WFP vehicles need repair.

Through strategically-based regional truck fleets, WFP consolidates transport surpluses and rapidly redistributes them as necessary to support emergency response capacities within a region -- speeding deployment time and significantly decreasing costs. WFP's regional fleets based in Kampala, Uganda and Accra, Ghana have ensured that countries across East and West Africa have immediate access to reliable trucks when needed most.
