Freeport adapting to Red Sea shipping situation 

Malta Freeport Terminals is in close contact with its clients regarding the calls that are expected to call Malta in the coming days.

Global shipping lines have been forced to divert a number of mainline services in recent days due to attacks on vessels in the Red Sea transiting through the Suez Canal.

Freeport CEO Alex Montebello said: “This is an extraordinary situation. 

“Some services are managing to transit through the Red Sea and the Suez Canal, and these are calling at the Freeport, but certain others are having to take an alternative route round the Cape of Good Hope and bypassing the Mediterranean altogether.

“Flexibility is key in this evolving scenario, and we are in constant contact with our customers. 

“Serving our clients remains our top priority, and we are doing our best to adapt to their needs.”
