Commercial Shipping

The company's principle activity has historically been shipping line representation; our directors have witnessed the evolution of shipping in Seychelles from break-bulk shipments to full containerisation; from direct calls from Europe to the current hub and feeder system. 


The Beginnings

Hunt Deltel was formed in 1937 by two prominent members of the local community, Percival Hunt and Alexandre Deltel. The company started with just 5 employees in an office without electricity on Revolution Avenue in Victoria. Many would be surprised to learn of our history in the provision of insurance services and the importation of a vast range of products, from cigars to alcohol, paint and sports goods.
