Decades of experience. Shaping a sustainable future.

What we do

Gas

Headquartered at the heart of the ARA region in Antwerp, our gas specialists are ideally placed to ship LPG throughout the north-west European inland waterway network. Safely, efficiently and reliably – for all our clients.

Chemicals

GEFO is one of Europe’s leading providers of chemical shipping. To ensure our clients the best possible service, we operate two distinct corporate divisions in this segment. GEFO Deepsea specializes in coastal routes. UNITAS is your partner for inland barging.

Oil

GEFO was built on excellence in oil barging. With more than 50 years of experience and more than 50 tankers, we remain a Top 3 inland barging operator for easy liquid chemicals and mineral oil.

Bunker

GEFO Bunker Trading is a global player. Substantiated by our own shipping fleets, which in Europe serve all the chemical and oil majors, our reputation for first-class bunkering solutions has long since spread worldwide.

Who we are

We´ve come a long way

GEFO was founded in 1961, in the northern German port city of Hamburg. Written out in full, the name GEFO translates as Company for Oil Transport Ltd*, which shows just how far we have grown since the 60s. What began as an exclusively inland operation barging oil on the Rhine is now a thriving international network specialising in chemical liquids, LPG´s, liquid gases, mineral oil and worldwide bunker trading.
