Ever wondered where the food on your plate comes from? Or the medicine in your cupboard?
Despite all the changes Malta’s experienced over the past couple of months, some things remain the same. Supermarkets remain stocked and pharmacies equipped with everything we could possibly need…
And there’s one company we can thank for it.
Falcotrans continues to be Malta’s leading logistics company even during a time of global pandemic, and their commitment to operating even when things get rough is a testimony to the hardened reputation they’ve built for themselves over the past 100 years.
The logistics company is responsible for a large chunk of imports to the Maltese islands, including pharmaceuticals and food products delivered to their clients’ doorstep from all over the world.
Many of us take for granted where our food and medicine comes from, but Falcotrans is aware of every road, street, nook and cranny that goes into the logistics game.
The company’s fleet of trucks continue to make weekly trips to mainland Europe, including Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, UK and many other countries, so that you can continue to be served uninterrupted even in this turbulent climate.
You know Falcotrans is doing a good job when you don’t hear about them…
Because that means items have arrived on time and they’re meeting your customer needs without you even knowing it.
There’s practically nothing they won’t import, but they’re experts when it comes to foods and pharmaceuticals.
That’s because they were the first local company to transport temperature-controlled goods into Malta thanks to their state-of-the-art fleet of refrigerated trailers that can accommodate temperatures as low as -22°C.
It’s also because of the invaluable relationships they’ve built with their clients over the years, which comes with the assurance that products will be delivered on a weekly basis, upon request and without you having to worry about the minute details.

Clients place an order and Falcotrans makes sure your goods get from point A to point B.
And clients have the option to track their shipments in real-time too. ‘Falcotrack’ is the latest innovative technology that provides full transparency with regards to clients’ products and puts your mind at ease knowing where they are at exactly what time.
“Our business is completely based around our clients and one of the things they had always asked for is for more transparency and control over their shipments to better cater to their own clients. Falcotrack allows our clients complete peace of mind over their shipments and allows them to stay in control “ said Sales Manager Jean Falzon.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Falcotrans continues to truck on and stick to its commitment of providing an unparalleled service on the island… albeit a few changes to its operations.
In addition to working from home, the logistics company has also implemented new collection standards which include a no-contact policy between clients and drivers.
They’ve also introduced all necessary PPE equipment such as face masks and gloves because safety is always at the forefront of their mind, especially when dealing with such valuable goods.
And on that note, it’s also worth mentioning that the logistics company has gained ISO 9001 Certification thanks to its rigid and strict quality control standards.
So not only do you know where your food or pharmaceuticals come from, but you also know they’re being delivered with the utmost care in mind.
But this isn’t just a COVID-19 measure. Falcotrans has been delivering your goods prior to the pandemic and they sure as hell will be delivering after this is all over.
A whole century in and this family business will continue to deliver, no matter the circumstances, no matter the cost. For more information or enquiries, be sure to check them out here!
