A new member Express Group joins MSPC

Date: 13/03/2013

We are pleased to announce that Express Group has recently become a new member of the MSPC.

The group started as a result of a decision taken by the late Emmanuel Vella after in 1945. Despite the various difficulties of operating utterly alone, Emmanuel Vella’s venture not only survived but flourished to become a reliable supplier for logistics requirements. The first ever truck was bought in 1960 and it was a pioneering event in the inland haulage industry. In 1978, Express Trailers Limited was set up by the Vella brothers (Emmanuel's sons), to maximise the opportunities that the roll-on roll-off (ro-ro) service which was just introduced in Malta offered. Since its inception, Express Trailers has transformed itself into Malta’s primary international trailer operator, equipped with well-maintained, diverse, large and state-of-the-art fleet. Express Freights Limited, was established in 1991 to act as a forwarding company for deep-sea traffic, thus enabling the group to connect Malta to the rest of the world, offering both groupage and full-load services. Thereafter, Eyre Cargo Services, being an IATA appointed agent, was also set up so that the group could offer air cargo logistics.  

The group has evolved into being a market leader of the logistics industry, specialising in providing a total logistics solution from a single source. Their expertise in over-land transport, air cargo and ocean freight has been acquired over years of providing a reliable service to their business partners. Whether if by road, sea or air transport, the group understands that the well-being of the goods and the necessity of timely deliveries are vital ingredients to the success of their clients' business. The group transport freight and goods at an agreed delivery time and price, and thanks to the well-established network, to any destination.

The group offer a broad range of groupage and full-load services to and from all European countries, North Africa and beyond both by road trailers and sea containers, including a fully monitored, temperature controlled network, meeting all customer requirements in terms of regulation, security, quality and handling for the Pharmaceutical industry. Express Group takes pride in being able to support their clients’ immediate business requirements by providing them with timed collections and deliveries especially when time constraints are their priority.

Other services the group offers include customs clearance, heavy project cargo movements, refrigerated transport, car transport, personal effects handling, parcel forwarding, packing, bonded warehousing, documents archiving, marine insurance, pre-shipment inspection and door-to-door services. By far the largest transport enterprise in Malta and the one stop shop for any logistics requirement.
