Crew management has always been at the heart of our company’s operations, and to this day represents the largest segment of our shipping activities. All the crew onboard vessels under our crew management are recruited through a network of fully controlled manning agencies in key locations.
We recognise that the success of a commercial maritime venture depends upon the quality and commitment of a vessel’s crew. Over the years MLAS have developed expert crew management services built around stringent selection, evaluation and training processes.
Seafarers are carefully screened, making sure only those fully qualified and properly certified are employed. Meanwhile, modern tailor-made database and IT management systems ensure that high quality standards are constantly checked and upheld. Indeed, such fully transparent screening and employment procedures ensure both vessel owners and crew applicants can easily evaluate the recruitment process.
We focus on developing competent, qualified and experienced seafarers who are fully aligned to a customer’s technical and operational requirements, as well as their culture. In addition, we only recruit those who display the right attitudes, behaviours and values to ensure a happy and well-managed vessel.
MLAS’s well experienced personnel take care of your crew change, from travel arrangements and visa to lodging and, if necessary, finding the right medical assistance. If you plan to change your ship’s crew during a voyage, MLAS provides a reliable and affordable end-to-end solution for all your needs.
To assist your logistical planning we can provide a realistic timetable for the formalities in advance ensuring that no valuable time is lost in process.
Furthermore, at no stage of the operation are security or health and safety compromised in any way. We use modern fleets of air conditioned cars & buses having three way seat belts which are periodically checked to ensure ongoing compliance with both national and international standards.
We use respected IATA licensed travel agents to facilitate all travel tickets and hotels reservations which may be required down the line. We have offices to serve crew members 24/7/365 though such needs should be made known at the time of engagement of our services.
MLAS will leave no stone unturned to ensure your crew is safely transported to and from your vessels and that all requisite needs have been properly catered for.
We also provide a safe and secure auxiliary service in all of our locations and the service consists of the following elements:
- Expatriate Quota
- Temporary Work Permit
- Airline ticket
- Meet & Greet
- Crew land transportation to final destination
- Car Hire (long or short term),
- Hotel Accommodation
- Background Check
- Drug & Alcohol Screening
We keep costs low and arrange crew change with associated services in a planned manner by saving a lot for you.
