Ikaros Shipping &
Brokerage Ltd (ISBC)
was established in 1985.
It dynamically entered the dry bulk sector, by initially purchasing, the M/V Ken Sea, a Japanese built log-bulk carrier, of about 17,000 m/t deadweight. That ship was the first bearing as part of its name composition, the “KEN”*, and indeed that ship brought to ISBC prosperity and eagerness in the pursuit for more.
ISBC grabbed the impulse to continue in the dry-bulk sector by purchasing more ships, solely bulk-carriers, and ONLY built in Japan, from well-known houses, such as NYK, Pacific Basin, Anglo-Eastern, Mitsui, Sanko, Marubeni, and the list goes on.
It was the time, that ISBC tonnage was welcomed by major Charterers, especially at that time Japanese, trading, mainly in the Far East and in particular between Japan and the Persian Gulf. Charterers such as Sanko, MOSK, NYK, Cargill, Sinochart, Eastern Ocean, ED&F Man, Panocean, Daeyang Shipping, Transammonia, Canpotex, Hudson Shipping Lines are some to the endless list.
Following the steadily continued growth, it was the time in 1995, to be transferred to our new private building, located steps away from the Piraeus shipping center.
