Due to Malta's geographical location this sector was developed in line with some of our customer's needs and requirements in the Mediterranean.
The fact that Malta is connected to numerous worldwide ports through the Freeport Container terminal has assisted in the development of this sector. This sector mainly caters for international clients who use Malta as a base in conjunction or as an alternative to the North European ports, which have become synonymous with this service. The warehousing services are also offered to a number of owners who use Malta from time to time as a base for the delivery of ship spares at roads.
Warehousing facilities are located within the terminal used by the shipping lines calling at the port of Marsaxlokk, and cargoes may be shipped to Malta not only by FCL, but also by LCL and Air.
