History

The group’s operations were commenced by the late Emmanuel Vella in 1945. Despite the various difficulties that any lone businessman encounters at the start, Emmanuel Vella’s venture kept flourishing and quickly established itself as a reliable and trusted supplier for transportation and logistics. In 1960, the very first truck was acquired, a pioneering event in the inland haulage industry.

In 1978 Express Trailers Limited was set up, to maximise the opportunities offered by the roll-on roll-off (ro-ro) service that had just been introduced in Malta. Express Trailers gradually became Malta’s primary international trailer operator, equipped with a well-maintained, diverse, large and state-of-the-art fleet. In 1991, Express Freights Limited was established to act as a forwarding company for deep-sea traffic thus enabling the group to connect Malta to all the world, offering both groupage and full-load services.

Eyre Travel Limited and Eyre Cargo Services were also set up enabling the group to also offer air cargo services and corporate travel services. Both companies are  IATA appointed agents for both passengers and cargo, and are also licensed for local customs clearance and haulage.

Almost seventy years later, Emmanuel Vella’s sons and most of their children, today play an active role in the group’s operations, delivering a secure, reliable and trusted service. Today, 190 employees are involved at all levels of service ranging from customs clearance to procedures and bond operations, repairs and maintenance to the group’s plants and the management of warehousing facilities and the pharma-approved warehouses. The company evolved into the leading transport and logistics company in Malta specialized in third party logistics that can meet any requirement and exceed any expectation.
