Discusses the distribution network within the country from how products enter to final destination, including reliability and condition of distribution mechanisms, major distribution centers, ports, etc.

Malta offers a full range of sales channels to consumers, with various distribution methods depending on the type of product offered.  These methods range from wholesalers selling to traditional shops which then sell to the public, to more sophisticated methods such as large department stores which have become increasingly popular outlets.

Maltese importers still import most items, especially capital equipment and raw materials, through agents and distributors.  Some large domestic manufacturing companies import these items directly.
