About


Malta

Malta enjoys an optimal position in the centre of the Mediterranean shipping routes. An ideal outpost for ships calling Malta for bunkering, supplies, transhipment, cargo and repairs.


As a country there has been regular investment in the industry over recent years and more and more foreign companies are reaping in on the professional services that Malta offers.





Industry Background

The Industry is regulated by Transport Malta, supervising the organisation and administrative aspects of the primary maritime services. The main aim is to enable ports, merchant shipping and yachting centers to operate within a centralized yet commercially-oriented framework.


An essential component of the Authority's remit is that it operates as a distinct commercially-driven organisation, committed to excellence in the provision of services that are both effective and competitive.

Ship Registration

Another service we offer is Vessel Registration. The procedure for the registration of a ship under the Maltese Flag is a well-defined and relatively clearly structured procedure.


The Malta flag is today a flag of choice. It's good standing is evidenced by both the number of ship-owning and ship-management companies who register their ships in Malta and also by the leading international banks and financiers who recommend the Maltese register. Malta's flag of confidence is further enhanced by the placing of our open ship registry which ranks amongst the Top eight registers in the world.

Our team is well trained and experienced and can affect registration in due time whilst focusing on avoiding any delays or timely complications.
