About International Associated Cargo Carrier (IACC)
International Associated Cargo Carrier (IACC) was established in 1979 by Egyptian business man and transport industry pioneer Mostafa El Ahwal. Being an avid risk taker with a sharp business acumen, and living in 1950s Saudi Arabia a land ripe with opportunities, proved to be a recipe for success. After years of experience helping set up the shipping industry in Saudi Arabia and across the gulf, El Ahwal returned to Egypt and founded International Associated Cargo Carrier. The company started off as one of the first private stevedoring companies in Alexandria, El Ahwal then shifted his focus eastwards, capitalizing on his ties across the Red Sea. IACC expanded into the field of shipping, offering a regular liner break bulk service; the first of its kind. Starting with one vessel between Jeddah and Suez, over the years, 6 more vessels were acquired serving over 20 destinations across the Middle East and Africa under the IACC and Transmar brands. As the company grew, more departments were added to include sea freight, air freight, logistics, ship agencies, ship supplies and inland transportation.
IACC Holdings takes pride in being a home-grown Egyptian company that has developed talents that are industry leaders today.
Our portfolio includes: Transmar, a leading regional container line; Safina Shipping Services specialized in ship agencies and marine services; Transcargo International (TCI), stevedoring, warehousing and port services and Transland International, inland transportation.
