- Ifchor Group
Ifchor S.A. was founded in 1976 by Riccardo Ravano, who wanted to continue the family tradition in the shipping world. Four years later, he opened up his partnership to Giovanni Calleri and Claudio Ceccarelli, whilst his elder brother Giuseppe Ravano joined in 1987.
Since its beginning Ifchor has been developing and expanding gradually, always looking at quality before volume first. By the year 2000, the company was counting 40 employees, and soon the number started to grow when the group started to diversify, with Ifchor Capes SA, then Ifchor Tankers followed by the opening of Ifchor Pacific Ltd in Hong Kong back in mid 2011 and Ifchor Capes Singapore Pte Ltd in 2012.
After re-entering the tanker sector by creating Ifchor Tankers Sarl, the Ifchor Group set up Ifchor Pacific Ltd and Ifchor Capes Singapore Pte Ltd to better follow the growing Asian market.
Built around a solid knowledge base and an acute awareness of the need for proper client care, the Ifchor Group is every day trying to serve at best the industry by supporting its clients' interests.
Ifchor S.A. and Ifchor Capes S.A. are members and panelists broker for the Baltic Exchange.
