A match made in Malta for Europa Road
Malta has become the latest addition to Europa Road’s range of destinations, with the announcement of a new weekly service between the capital Valletta and Europa’s facility in Dartford (UK). To create the new service, Europa Road has entered into a partnership with the Maltese trailer and LCL operator Parnis England Trucking. Both companies' management has known each other for many years.
Malta’s population of around 432,000, which swells to more than 1 million people in the tourist season, relies heavily on imports. The country produces only 20% of the food it consumes on the island itself.
Europa's operations director Dan Cook said that "the UK is one of Malta's leading suppliers. This new route is an opportunity for Europa to open the door to existing customers who ship to Malta and exploit another new customer base for this interesting market. (mw)
