We supply crew for vessels of all types, we will tailor solutions to suit individual needs and requirements. The focus is always on identifying how we can improve service delivery, such as ensuring stringent recruitment checks are in place to guarantee first-rate seafarer performance standards.
We also look at identifying specific functions that can be streamlined to be more cost effective – supported by our commercial team who can offer client solutions on a ‘cost’ or on ‘lumpsum’ basis. However, saving money is never to the detriment of quality and safety, which will forever be our main priorities.
