SMS International Shore Operations

S.M.S or S Mifsud & Sons Group was established as a family business in Malta in 1860 by the family of our current Chairman, and now, some 150 years later, employs over 300 persons within various fields including travel and tourism & shipping.

SMS Group is still very much a family concern under the Chairmanship of Neville Mifsud & his sons, Simon & Samuel, who not only serve on the board but take an active role within the various businesses within the group.

In 1950, SMS Shipping was established & over the years became very much involved in providing port agency services, so the concept of offering ground handling services for cruise liners was only natural & as the international cruising market grew, as did SMS, along with it’s reputation for professionalism and trustworthiness.

In 1996 we took our 40+ years of experience in Malta and brought it to the UK, thus creating S.M.S International Shore Operations. In 20 years our reputation has grown and we now offer passenger logistics, transportation & excursions in the following countries: Denmark, Italy, The Netherlands, Malta, Tunisia, UK & Ireland and USA.
