Statement from Wallem Group
Statement from Wallem Group
05 August 2016

A formal complaint from Miss Sophia Walker was received on 19th July 2016 regarding a gender discrimination claim in relation to the interview of cadets at Fleetwood Nautical College in the United Kingdom. Wallem addressed Miss Walker’s complaint and responded to her directly on 20th July with an unreserved apology and an invitation for further dialogue, which was rejected by Miss Walker.

Wallem Group is an equal opportunities employer. The views expressed in the message sent to Fleetwood Nautical College, that Miss Walker objected to, were made in poor judgment by a single individual and do not in any way reflect the views held by Wallem or the values and culture of the Group. A full investigation has been carried out by the Group and disciplinary action taken in accordance with our Group policies and procedures.

We have a significant number of female seafarers serving within our fleet - over 40 female seafarers of various nationalities spread evenly across the ranks and including 6 female cadets. In addition, over 41% of our shore-based organization is female; many of whom are at senior levels in the Group.

Wallem Group has rigorous recruitment policies in place to ensure that we employ the right person for the position based on due process which takes into account their qualifications, skills, experience and a variety of assessments alone – gender is not a factor.

In addition, we have a policy in place related to recruitment at sea which clearly states that the company will treat all seafarers fairly and respectfully without bias based on a seafarer's colour, creed, gender, race or religion either in the employment of or in advancement of a seafarer's career.

Wallem Group regrets this unfortunate matter.

Wallem Welcomes World’s Oldest Tall Ship to Hong Kong

Wallem Ship Agency welcomes the world’s oldest full rigged tall ship; the…

The world’s oldest full rigged tall ship; the Norwegian Sørlandet sailed into Hong Kong harbour on the morning of 21st June, 2016.

The ship, which was built in 1927, is on a two year circumnavigation, crewed by students from A+ World Academy, an onboard boarding school comprising of international students from six different countries.

Thanks to our vast experience in providing quality and efficient port services for a wide range of vessel types, Wallem Ship Agencies has been appointed port agent for the vessel. Wallem has therefore assisted with all pre-arrival arrangements and in-port services for the vessel’s stay in Hong Kong.

 Sorlandet and Wallem
The Sørlandet berthed at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum 

Mikael Johansson, the Sorlandet’s CEO said, “We are very grateful for your kind support to us. Everyone on board and here in the office in Norway is excited for the vessel to berth in Hong Kong!”

 The tall ship will remain docked at Pier 8 next to the Maritime Museum where a graduation ceremony will be held for the students of A+ World Academy.

We will handle 64 calls for MSC across 4 ports in Korea (Yeosu, Incheon, Busan and Jeju) between now and the end of this year; with port rotations between China, Korea and Japan.
