IT'S MORE THAN BUSINESS WHEN LIVES ARE AT STAKE
WHEN YOUR PRODUCTS CAN SAVE LIVES, YOU WANT THEM WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED THE MOST
In times of crisis there is a unique convergence of opportunity and responsibility. 'Emergency-Relief' is a 120 Billion USD industry. It is also the industry with the most profound impact on people's lives.
This is why IOCR has created a non-commercial trading-platform where responsible companies can sell their goods directly to qualified buyers.
Our objective: Making it as fast, transparant and easy to trade and distribute emergency-supplies globally, without the cost, delays and added complexity of non-value-adding middlemen.
HOW IOCR CAN HELP
IOCR gives its corporate members access to the global emergency-relief market and at the same time, we take away many of the hurdles and challenges companies experience when trading internationally especially in times of crisis.
Some of the key benefits for companies:

A closed market with qualified customers only
Information to help with forecasting and production-planning
Well-informed price-setting, allows for fair and ethical margins

"My hat is really off to the IOCR team! The resources and capabilities you are pulling together in short order are truly amazing. I wish you all the best and stand prepared to help if there is any way I might be of service."
David SHERMAN, USA
"IOCR is a very sophisticated and practical platform to support the world in this time of crisis. Led by Ief Winckelmans and his team it is something you must see!
Thanks for this worthwhile endeavour."
Luis GOMEZ, Mexico
"This is what I have been asking for. It surprises me that neither of the big IGO's seem to be moving into this space -- but if a non-profit private sector entity is ready to step up and occupy this void, I'd say adelante!"
