About ITC

In 1984, Ikaros Transport Corporation (ITC) was formed as an IATA air freight forwarder by Zografakis family. Originally based in Valley Stream, NY, the central focus of this enterprising family business was to provide transportation services to and from Greece where they would quickly carve out a niche in the industry and soon become one of the largest air-freight forwarders in the region.

By 1993, Ikaros Transport Corp became a licensed NVOCC (non-vessel operating carrier) and Forwarder with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) and expanded its operations to incorporate ocean freight forwarding. Under the new name ITC International, the Zografakis family extended the reach of their services on a global scale across Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, and Asia. That same year, ITC International also formed JAV International offering customs brokerage services to help their customers steer clear of fines, penalties, and delayed shipments. As a sister company to ITC International with superior service that provides their clients with complete visibility into the status of their shipments, JAV International quickly became a leader in the industry, helping their clients maintain compliance with continually changing US Customs regulations and programs.

With sustained success that fueled ITC International’s continued growth throughout the 1990s, the company also launched Cargo Transportation Logistics Incorporated in 1999 to take on the domestic trucking, container drayage, and fully-licensed truck brokerage needs of their clients. With a complete, end-to-end transportation and logistics solution in place, ITC International was able to give their customers complete control over their shipments and effectively ensure timely delivery by air, ocean or domestic, import, or export. ITC International grew into a worldwide, world-class global forwarding and logistics solution.

Today, ITC Group comprising of all three companies is a full-service, state-of-the-art Global Logistics Provider that is firmly committed to providing their customers with superior service and highly customized solutions every time. And, as a US Customs Bonded Facility and Container Freight Station (CFS), ITC Group also offers a comprehensive range of enhanced import and export services that consistently surpass industry standards, as well as our customers’ expectations.

Since our founding, ITC Group has been committed to providing our customers with the support, knowledge, and logistics expertise they need to focus on keeping their business’ successful. Now, as we enter our 27th year in the industry, the diverse needs of our customers may have evolved over time, but our commitment to providing them with the superior forwarding and logistics experience they have always expected from us remains the same.
