Swiss-headquartered international shipbroking company Ifchor has opened a new office in Dubai to focus on regional dry bulk markets. This is the fast-growing full-service company’s newest office, adding to the nine already operational in Europe, Asia, and the USA.
The company has said that Dubai, the hub of the expanding Middle East maritime sector, is an ideal platform for expanding the network into the wider GCC market. Ifchor Middle East plans to offer independent shipping market expertise to charterers, owners, and operators in the region, backed by its global office network.
Initially manned by a team of four brokers, the office will provide a full spectrum of services from physical freight broking to freight strategy and risk management, as well as projects consultancy.
