Already three months have passed since we issued the first edition of this Express Link. And we are now here, introducing the second edition, backed by the very good feedback we have been receiving about this new initiative.
Although three months have passed, things outside the company have not changed much. Around Europe and the world, the pandemic goes on unabated, and Malta is no exception. Yet, as I have already had ample opportunity to state, although times are difficult, I also believe that this situation is a temporary one because the world always mends itself. I do really believe that. And that is what keeps me soldiering on.
Of course, as your company’s CEO, my first priority remains that of steering the company through these rough waves. We are a strong company, built on very solid foundations. However, this company is also built on people and as one of the pillars of this company, you, our employees remain a top priority.
From this edition, you will clearly find out how notwithstanding everything, we at Express Trailers, have kept the momentum going. We are using this time to train our people more. We also started introducing more training for our industrial people. They are the ones who are doing the heavy duty work and they need to know they are working safely and securely.
But my biggest concern at this point in time remains that of our truckers who daily battle the roads solo on the continents. Their only comfort zone is their own cabin – their home away from home. But we are aware of how challenged they are, not only because they have to spend long hours alone but because they are doing so in such uncertain circumstances.
We are constantly in touch with all of them and their story is a heroic one. They have to swab every other day, they are bleeding from their sore nostrils, and all this, because they are the ones delivering and making sure we find all our essentials whenever we need them. They are doing this to serve us all.
I harbour total respect for all our drivers on Malta’s and Europe’s roads. They are our frontliners. Above all, they are our heroes.
