Paul Abela (GRTU President)
GRTU President Paul Abela and Carmel Zammit representing hauliers met Valletta Gateway Terminals (VGT) to discuss a public notice on port operation.
It was explained that these new measures were implemented in order to improve safety and security conditions at the quays and at the same time improving efficiency during operations. Mr Zammit raised a concern that some hauliers might not find parking at the segregated areas and felt they might not be an advantageous position to ensure a prompt delivery of their cargo. It was however explained by VGT that should one of the trailers being discharged happen to belong to a haulier who is on foot, he will be called over to bring his truck and then can proceed as a direct delivery.
Regarding the cargo which arrives to Malta with Virtu Ferries, as mentioned MMA (TM) there is a pending court case about this issue. Unfortunately VGT were able to comment much on any possible changes once it berths at DWQ5 since they are not fully aware of the contract details.
