Ship Owners Want Dedicated Crewing Pools

 Ship owners are pushing for a dedicated crewing pool service from ship managers, with seafarers returning to an owner’s fleet of vessels with a specific manager.

“The demand for a dedicated seafarer pool service has grown as ship owners see the advantages of having the same set of sea staff rotating on their vessels. This particularly applies to senior officers, or the “top four””, said Ray Mc Namara, Wallem Ship Management Managing Director.

“The most recent case in point was Frontline Management AS requesting a dedicated seafarer pool for the Cape size bulk carriers to be taken into Wallem Ship Management from mid-April.

“For Frontline we are assembling a team of Wallem Indian and Filipino seafarers with extensive experience sailing on Wallem vessels. This team will be on exclusive rotation to the Frontline bulk carriers, becoming familiar with the vessels and their trading patterns and using that familiarity, along with their skills and knowledge, to provide a consistently high level of efficient operations.

“Wallem can provide the service because we have an extensive pool of loyal, professional seafarers with excellent knowledge and attitude towards seafaring. Other major ship owner clients use our dedicated crewing pool service for the high officer return rate we deliver.”

Retention is a focus for Wallem’s fleet personnel team, and the recent ISWAN (International Seafarers’ Association Network) Award for Shipping Company of the Year, an award backed by the ITF, was endorsement that the retention programs build loyalty and trust, consistently bringing seafarers back to Wallem.

The Wallem Group has been scooping the shipping awards pool, winning a plethora of awards from peers, seafarers, clients and government.

“We are so proud of the recognition we have received from across the industry – from our clients and peers to our employees and government bodies – it is all endorsement that Wallem is growing its business with best practice and innovation,” said Simon Doughty, Wallem Group CEO.

“We are committed to building on our 110 year heritage with a strategy that takes a long view of our business and includes working with clients that have a similar view on sustainable business, developing our shore and sea staff as shipping’s future leaders, and making a positive contribution to our industry.”

The Shipping Company of the Year title was bestowed on Wallem by the International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) for the Wallem Group’s crew welfare program in the Seafarer Welfare Awards.

ISWAN is backed by the ITF (International Transport Workers Federation and nominations for the Award are made by seafarers, endorsing Wallem as a leading employer for seafarers around the world.

The Award was announced last night at a ceremony hosted by the Director General of the International Labour Organisation, Mr Guy Ryder, at the ILO in Geneva.

Wallem Ship Management has received double the recognition from leading Japanese ship owner/operator client NYK Group, winning Car Carrier of the Year Awards for two vessels in management, and the Innovative Bunker and Idle time Saving (IBIS) Award for all NYK container vessels in Wallem’s management.

The shipping industry last night recognised Wallem with the Ship Manager of the Year Award at the annual Seatrade Asia awards ceremony in Singapore on 07 April. The Award recognises excellence in ship management, from crewing to technical and procurement services. Wallem delivers ship management services from the key maritime locations of Hong Kong, Singapore, Europe and North America.

Wallem also won the Most Compassionate Employer of Indian Seafarers Award, bestowed by the Indian government, for Wallem’s policies and activities in seafarer welfare.
