IFS has been established in 1999, as a forwarding company, and solely owned by Mr. Georges Saroukhan and Mr. Tony Mansour.

Accordingly we have established our worldwide network throughout our faithful foreign partners allowing us to grow in an arrow way. With the care and services that IF Shave provided to the market clients, we have made ourselves the loyal example to all local competitors who always keep an open eye on us.

Since then most of the reliable well known carriers esteem our presence in Lebanon, by offering us their most competitive rates based on our volume market, by respecting our commitments towards them.

In 2003 we have enlarged our business to the vessel's Chartering, as we have had an oil project in Iraq in Big city, thus we had created an operational department for this project Iraqi business.

During 2005 we were selected as an exclusive forwarding and clearing agent for the international organization of UNICEF and UNIFIL.
