Our Mission & Vision
Vision

IFCO’s vision is to achieve and maintain global market leadership and profitability in all of our businesses without sacrificing or compromising our moral responsibility toward all the people with whom we deal and to the ecological system from which we draw our resources.

Mission

Our RPC and pallet solutions are state-of-the-art and are designed to provide optimal environmental protection. IFCO’s mission is to take into account social and environmental considerations in the process of constantly improving our solutions so that they provide the most cost-efficient and environmentally friendly ways to support our clients.
Corporate culture
As a global corporation, it is necessary to think and communicate across language and geographical barriers, and to orient our strategies accordingly. However, as we endeavor to succeed in each of our markets, we aim to be flexible enough to adapt our global strategy to the local market conditions.

Our business model calls for close relationships with our customers and the local market conditions. To reflect this, we think globally and act locally. Therefore, our operational staff is usually recruited from the individual countries and regions in which we operate. Due to their close contacts with our customers, they are highly familiar with individual client needs and concerns, and are conversant with the different cultures characterizing the various individual markets. This close interaction with our customers and the environment in which they operate is vital for our long term success.
