Inchcape Shipping Services Opens Mauritius Office

(Press Release)
Friday, July 27, 2012

Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has expanded its operations into Mauritius, with the acquisition of Belship Co Ltd. 

 

Renamed ISS Belship, this opening marks ISS’ first venture in the country and is based in the capital, Port-Louis. Belship Co Ltd was founded in 1996 and ISS Belship will continue to offer established services including marine and offshore agency, logistics and freight forwarding, as well as introducing a wider portfolio of global service offerings. The ISS Belship team in Port Louis is headed by General Manager Arnaud Teycheney, who was a former shareholder of Belship and is loyally supported by his team of experienced staff. 

 

ISS celebrated the opening in Mauritius with a reception at the Le Meridian Resort, Balaclava on 1st June 2012. Captain Claus Hyldager, Group CEO Inchcape Shipping Services, played host to a number of local dignitaries and customers, including the former owner of Belship Mrs Monique Oshan Bellepeau, Acting President of the Republic of Mauritius, Mr. M.Allet, Chairman of the MPA and Captain L. Barbeau, Port Master of the MPA.

 

The acquisition is ISS’ seventh opening during a formidable period of growth for the company this year.  Mauritius is viewed as an increasingly strategic location which is well situated on major shipping lanes. Bunkering and transfer of security personnel are both seen as tremendous growth opportunities for the business.  All clients will now have the advantage of local expertise and knowledge, combined with ISS’ global network, systems, infrastructure and compliance standards.
