David Abela

(Director, EuroBridge)

David’s education at St Aloysius College helped form his dedicated and disciplined character. After joining EuroBridge Shipping Services Ltd as a Customs Clearance Executive in June 1998, he was promoted to Operations and Marketing Manager in December 1999. Demonstrating great dedication to the company and a willingness to keep on learning the trade, in August 2000, at the age of 22, he acquired a major part of the company shareholding to become one of the youngest Managing Directors in Malta.

Two decades later, EuroBridge is one of the leading logistics and freight forwarding companies in Malta, with its own fleet of trailers offering regular and established groupage and full-load services throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

David has also worked with a local transporter, and so has been involved in all elements of the freight forwarding industry. This, together with achieving a Diploma in Transport and Logistics Studies (MCILT), makes him extremely knowledgeable about the shipping and logistics sector.
