International Multimodal Transport "RAFIMAR"


RAFIMAR Group was established in 1978, making it one of the oldest private sector shipping firms in Egypt. Over the last 33 years, it has been actively involved in the Egyptian market as Ship owners, Agents and Charterers. Since its establishment, the company has grown from a sole partnership with an operating capital of Egyptian Pounds 20,000 to a private shareholding company, which in 1998 had an invested capital of US$ 5 million.
Today, the RAFIMAR Group has offices in Alexandria, Port Said, Suez, Damietta and Cairo. In the past, ship owners were forced to use slow, bureaucratic and inefficient state agents who often lacked the skills and flexibility to meet owners' specific needs. Under the new regulation rules, in 1998 RAFIMAR became one of the first privately owned companies to hold a full Shipping Agency license.
