Logistics sector takes centre-stage

13th July 2017

Malta is celebrated as a natural hub for the logistics sector in FIATA’s latest newsletter.

A feature on Malta’s logistics sector has been featured with prominence in FIATA’s latest newsletter ‘FIATA Review’, which is distributed to some 6500 associated members world-wide. FIATA is the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, of which the Malta Chamber through its Logistics Business Section is an associate member.

Setting the theme for the whole publication, the Malta feature describes the island as a natural hub in the Mediterranean, and focuses on the leaps and bounds this sector has performed in the recent past in Malta.

The feature provides readers with a detailed account of the favourable economic conditions enjoyed in Malta as well as details on how to set up a business on the island which is ‘in the cross-roads of the Mediterranean’.

The write-up also says that as a member of FIATA since 2016, the Logistics Business Section within the Malta Chamber has already made a significant impact in the logistics sector and is currently lobbying with government to enact regulations, incentives and supply chain education for the logistics sector in general.

Being historically a maritime trading nation, Malta’s challenges are to improve education and facilitation of trade, the feature concludes.
