Manu Ravano, CEO of IFCHOR, said, “We firmly believe that a combination of IFCHOR’s dry bulk expertise, competitiveness and connections and McQuilling’s Latin American history and presence will deliver clients with a highly effective shipbroking solution. The Latin American market, especially in terms of cargo, continues to grow and this partnership with McQuilling will enable us to provide our clients with greater access to the region.”
