As a professional shipping agent in Malta, we have built our expertise through the full spectrum of shipping and logistics services we offer to our clients. This takes us beyond the one-stop-shop approach, to offering all clients access to industry expertise in each relevant shipping service area.

Since 1848, when the company first opened its doors, we have adapted to the changing needs of the market, investing in new technologies whilst at the same time re-investing in our ever-growing workforce, passing down the knowledge that can only be gained from such a long-standing position in the industry. Our logistics expertise and drive to provide the best solutions to our customers have placed us as one of the iconic shipping companies in Malta. 

Many well-established companies, both locally and overseas, have placed their trust in our ability to deliver. Our unique touch is in delivering up-to-date solutions and services that can be both flexible as well as cost effective. We understand the nature of the business can sometimes be unpredictable and clients need a reliable shipping agent who can adapt to the ever-varying needs of the project, whilst at the same time meeting deadlines successfully.

We have turned the challenges of the industry into tangible opportunities and have used this inspiration to solidify our position as a regional leader, growing from strength to strength. This was reinforced in 2009 by our appointment as a full liner agent for Maersk Line, the world’s leading and most reliable container shipping company.

Our operations cover the key areas of the Mediterranean basin, including Malta, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya, providing us with many touch points with which to service Europe and beyond. With this international reach, we’re strategically placed to service the needs of our clients and ready to dive into the next chapter of the Thomas Smith success story.

We have nurtured the inherent values that have made us and continue to make us unique to the market; our integrity, loyalty and reliability. Together with our investment in new technology and new opportunities, we’re looking forward to the challenges of the future.

We hope you enjoy discovering more about us. Of course if there is something more specific you would like to discuss with us, do contact us, it will be great to hear from you.
