Focal Maritime

Strengthening the Focal point

02/09/01

Malta’s Focal Maritime marks a new generation of ship agent that does not have the domestic market as its prime source of business.

FOCAL MARITIME, recently appointed as the Malta representative for K Line, in addition to its existing agency for United Feeder Services (UFS) of Cyprus, is emerging as one of the most successful of a new generation of ship agents in Malta.

K Line does not call at Malta with its own vessels as yet, but does have a slot charter arrangement with CMA CGM through which it offers a weekly eastbound and westbound service. The Japanese carrier is now transhipping cargo from the Far East and Europe for Eastern Mediterranean ports over Malta.

“The Mediterranean is one of the fastest growing regions for container shipping, and K Line has decided that Malta is an ideal strategic location for its Mediterranean operation,” explains Godwin Xerri, managing director.
