Salvo Grima (Freeport Operations) Ltd

Storage & Warehousing
The customs- free zone at the Malta Freeport, where our facilities are located, is a segregated part of the island that qualifies as extra-territorial for the purposes of customs, currency and commercial law, making it exempt from the imposition of customs duties or taxes, and the obligations of clearance procedures.  The Malta International Airport and Groupage Terminal Depot are situated within a six kilometer radius of the Malta Freeport.  This opens up excellent opportunities for sea and air links as well as convenient warehousing facilities.

Through our warehouse facilities we offer :
•    A trained, dedicated workforce on 24-hour call
•    Unlimited and exclusive access to your stocks
•    Cost – effectiveness
•    Chill room facilities upon request
•    Accommodation of reefer containers
•    Round –the-clock security
•    An industry compliant health and safety regime
•    Flexible storage rates

The advantages of storing goods at our premises include unlimited storage periods (no minimum volume requirements are applied) and secure environment that is monitored not only electronically but also by security gates manned 24/7 round the year.

Cargo Manipulation – A robust IT system including an inventory control system, providing clients with a detailed audit trail of every transaction.  Electronic records of all movements into and out of the warehouse are kept. Details include a weekly report depicting the consignments received and shipped, with Bill of Lading and/or AIR WAYBILL numbers, customs status, etc. An efficient telecommunications infrastructure ensures timely communication throughout the duration of each job.

Consolidation – We support our customers that are sourcing products worldwide for consolidation. Several shipments arriving from different locations can be routed to our warehouse facilities where we will consolidate and ship to final destination as one shipment.

Break Bulk – one shipment can arrive at our warehouse facilities where we will break it down into multiple shipments according to the various destinations.

Re-labeling and repackaging –  Operating within the Malta Freeport framework, this process usually encompasses the breaking up of the consignment for repackaging into smaller units, the changing of the label design for specific purposes and the translation of label wording into the language of the receiving country.

Showroom – Our warehouse may be utilised as a “showroom” whereby clients can invite their customers to inspect the goods prior to concluding their business.

Assembly – Our facilities at the Malta Freeport could also be ideal for light assembly operations, where different components can be shipped and assembled all enjoying a customs and duty free regime.

Fiscal Representation – This is an ancillary service suitable for traders established outside the European Union (EU) seeking logistical solutions to export their products competitively to all the EU states.

Consignments of traders outside the EU can circulate freely within the EU once customs duty is paid in Malta. Through the Onward Supply Relief process this may be done without actually paying Value Added Tax (VAT). This process simply ensures that VAT is accounted for in accordance with Maltese VAT legislation.

Having achieved free circulation (C status), consignments originating from outside the EU but stored within our facilities at the Malta Freeport are strategically placed to compete with similar goods originating within the EU.
