Regent History

In 1988 Paddy Hoon founded Regent Tanzania Ltd with his wife Houria and worked predominantly with the British High Commission to provide procurement and customs clearance services. The business grew gradually and has served most companies and industry sectors that are found in Tanzania.

The most notable achievements are full Logistics service delivery for projects in remote locations including the first modern gold mine built in Tanzania (Golden Pride), successful establishment of over 50 companies and working with Expeditors International, allowing a full global capability in freight forwarding.

In 2010 Regent Tanzania Ltd established and managed the first Oil & Gas Supply Base (Mtwara) in East Africa to support the gas exploration programme in Tanzania. Not only does Regent provide services to the international gas exploration clients like Ophir, BG Group, Statoil and Petrobras but also to various support companies.

Regent is the market leader in Tanzania in customs clearance, logistics and transportation services.
