Calpac Traders Ltd. is a Maltese registered company of long standing and was registered under “The Commercial Partnerships Act 1962” of Malta, under Partnership No C155, as well as licensed by The Malta Chamber of Commerce to act as Commission Agents under licence No. 1090. It has been active in this field for the last forty-five years and has since established a high reputation for providing an efficient service to the satisfaction of its clients.
The Company’s activities are mainly geared for the maritime industry, acting as Port Agents for vessels calling at Malta for dry-docking, loading or unloading of cargo, crew changes, bunkers, to collect stores and provisions and other marine-related activities. Prior to arrival of the ship, preparations are undertaken to negotiate for the right berth at the right time, book pilot, tug and mooring men, present customs documentation and arrange for provisions, medical attendance, accommodation and transport for on-signing or off-signing crew.
During the vessel’s stay at Malta we liaise with suppliers, repairers, classification societies etc. Ship’s spares required urgently during repairs, arriving from overseas are promptly cleared from customs and transferred to the vessel immediately. Our vast experience, contacts and local knowledge are all put together to provide an efficient and comprehensive service saving the owner precious time and money. We have excellent contacts with Transport Malta (Malta Maritime Authority), Palumbo Shipyards, Customs Authorities, Tug Boats and other ancillary organizations, which enable us to provide our clients with a prompt and most competitive service.
Our ship agency personnel visit vessels daily to see to any requirements and are on call 24-hours a day, seven days a week for any necessity. Over the years we have acted as agents for a substantial number of vessels ranging from small yachts to large VLCC’s. Amongst our numerous, satisfied clients we also have major oil companies for whom we have acted as agents whilst operating offshore Malta.
We are proud to have obtained the reputation of providing a high-class quality service and in 1982 CALPAC was awarded the EDICOIN Award for best service and quality and in 2012 we have been awarded the FONASBA Quality Standard Certificate.
Malta has always played a very important role in the International Trade Business since its geographical position in the centre of the Mediterranean puts it on the crossroad between North Africa and Europe and the Far East and the Atlantic. With a dry-docking facility of up to 300,000 DWT, Freeport transhipment services, a tank-cleaning farm that is amongst the most sophisticated in the Mediterranean and backed by an experienced team, we are in a position to offer the kind of service that even the most exacting of clients expect.
