Monday October 18, 2021 was a historic moment for Mahe Shipping Company as it relocates to new purpose-built premises on Veloutier Road at the New Port, Victoria. This is a major evolution for Mahe Shipping as the company strives to meet the challenges of the 21st century and maintain its lead as an innovative, efficient and dynamic shipping and logistics company.
Mahe Shipping celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019, but the company has even deeper roots in Seychelles history stretching back more than a century.

The balance of shares was held by Noel Bentley-Buckle (known to his friends as ‘Box’ as he was born on Boxing Day) and later his son Tony, chairman and founder of Southern Line of East Africa.
