Luqa, Malta: Express Group of Luqa has opened new temperature-controlled warehousing facilities, designed and built for pharmaceutical storage.

“We have a Europe-wide network with our strategic partner DHL Coldchain,” says Fleri Soler.

“Our temperature-equipped trailers, controlled in Malta by our operational staff, have GPS tracking and a live temperature reading facility available to the client while the medicines are in transit to their final destination.”
