Freight transport in the Palestinian territories is road-based. It is fully privatized; owned and operated by individuals or companies. Freight routes are not fixed or regulated. There is no enforcement of maximum weights. A very high percentage of vehicles are old. By 1998, there were 22000 and 8000 trucks registered in the Palestinian territories.
In 2001, the number of licensed freight vehicles was 23215. In addition, there were approximately 900 vehicles operating in a non-legal freight transport. In 2002, the number of licensed vehicles dropped in the WB; however, increased in GS.
Seaport and Maritime Transportation
Since 1967, the international trade serving the Palestinians areas was done through the seaports of Haifa and Ashdod with restrictions. The Israeli security checks on exported Palestinian products resulted in considerable delays and losses. With the establishment of the PNA, a decision was made to build Gaza Seaport near Gaza City. The construction of the seaport was delayed due to the Israeli obstacles and opposition to constructing the seaport, which were related to security and custom inspection.
The agreed arrangements included establishing procedures for checking, operation, management, and security in the seaport through a joint Sea Port Protocol. The plans for the seaport include the construction of three wharfs, a breakwater, excavation and leveling works, and the necessary facilities and infrastructure.
The depth of water will reach for this stage 10 m, so that 15-25 thousand ton ships can be served. The Palestinian Seaports Authority (SA) was created in 1999 under the umbrella of the Ministry of Transport (MOT). SA has developed a number of plans and developmental programs, an organizational structure, and had prepared the first draft law to regulate aspects of sea transportation.
