Trukai is the largest importer of rice in Papua New Guinea. Last year over 230,000 tonnes of rice was imported, to be milled into finished product for sale in the local FMCG market. This equates to over 9,000 TEU for the year.
To move these sorts of volumes requires partnering with like-minded companies, who realise that service, timeliness, and attention to detail are the keys to success, in a demanding environment such as PNG.
Express Freight Management has been working with Trukai Industries in all facets of their supply chain, in terms of customs clearance, trucking of containers between Trukai’s site, short and long term storage, as well as assisting in fumigation of raw materials.
EFM’s ability to react quickly to changes within Trukai’s production schedule, and ‘can do’ attitude allows a seamless transaction between the harsh reality of trucking product in PNG, and the need to continuously provide a superior product to the PNG marketplace.
With economic market conditions in PNG plateauing post-LNG, Trukai is continually striving to bring innovation into our business, to ensure costs are kept low. EFM has been more than willing to work with Trukai in a number of areas within the business, to ensure the supply chain costs are controlled, and redundancy is minimised.
I would be more than happy to recommend EFM’s services to any large corporates in PNG, who are looking for cost down solutions, with a high level of service, understanding, and integrity within the PNG marketplace.

As well as this, EFM provides transport from the Zenag deport to Lae wharf for coastal shipping of our various poultry products.
