Tschudi Group is a private shipping and investment company based in Oslo, Norway. Among the shipping companies owned are Eesti Merelaevandus, TECO Lines, International Transport Contractors Management, First Baltic Shipmanagement and Rederiet Otto Danielsen as well as the inhouse groups Tschudi Management and Tschudi Road Transport and the former mining company Sydvaranger.

The company was created by a demerger of Tschudi & Eitzen when the Tschudi family took over part of the company while the rest continued as the Eitzen Group owned by the Eitzen family. Tschudi & Eitzen dates back to 1883. In 2007 the group sold its last ore-bulk-oil carrier and left that sector.
