Just 50 miles south of Italy lies Malta, officially the Republic of Malta, and consists of the main island Malta and the smaller islands of Gozo and Comino. Strategically placed in the Mediterranean, it is a major transshipment point and is the only country to be awarded the George Cross. A depiction of the George Cross now appears in the upper hoist corner of the Flag of Malta.
Geography and history aside, we have, for several years, been transporting freight to Malta as part of our general forwarding services, often on a subcontracted basis, or via Milan. We were therefore extremely pleased during 2018 to team up with EuroBridge Shipping Services Limited and commence our own road freight groupage service to Malta.
Our freight service to Malta
Our road freight service to Malta operates via EuroBridges Milan hub, where goods from all over Europe are consolidated and loaded onto our partner’s own fleet of trailers.
- Our road freight service to Malta is at least twice-weekly with departures from the UK every Tuesday (/Wednesday morning) and Thursday
- Arrival in Malta is Monday and Thursday respectively with deliveries the same day or the day after throughout all mainland Malta, and an extra day for Gozo and Comino
- A Friday departure from the UK is also available but in order to meet the departure from Milan on Monday, it is restricted to normal goods so excludes dangerous goods as a general rule
In line with all services, all of these departures, apart from Friday, can carry dangerous goods.
We are extremely hopeful that sooner rather than later trailers from the UK will go direct to Malta without any transshipment in Milan.
