MMS Shipping Agency established in 1978.

MMS Shipping Agency was established in 1978 by the late Mr.Ronald Galea as brokers, ship charterers, bunker and ship agents operating from a centrally located office in Malta. MMS Shipping Agency is now also ISO 9001 Certified by DIMITTO Certification Services and approved by the FONASBA Quality Standard. We are also members of the Malta Association of Ship Agents.


We offer all services related to the chartering of ships and the movement of cargo to and from Malta. We handle about sixty percent of Malta’s incoming bulk cargoes and take pride in offering timely and effective service. We specialize in arranging bunker supplies both offshore Malta and inside Port. We can arrange crew changes and processing of all the necessary Immigration and customs formalities including ok-to-board, transit visas, immigration pratique, transfers and hotel accommodation.


We can also co-ordinate Ship husbandry operations, dry-docking, delivery of spare parts, provisions and stores. We have attended several ships calling Malta for change of owners, inspections, overhauls and other maintenance works.


MMS Shipping Agency is now in its second generation and has expanded its business providing an all-round service to ship owners and managers.


We can cater for transhipment cargo from Malta to any destination in the Mediterranean. We also register vessels under the Maltese flag.


MMS Shipping Agency now also offers freight forwarding solutions in partnership with Rabelink International Freight (Malta) Ltd.


We are totally client oriented and pride ourselves in seeing to the individual requirements of each of our partners, thus, ensuring that everything is dealt with in the best and smoothest way possible.


On our website you will find a brief description of each of the services we offer. Please contact us with any requests and we assure you of our prompt attention.
