CREW MANAGEMENTGLOBAL MOBILITY
Moving ship and shore personnel across borders and ensuring seamless mobility is a challenge. We deliver outstanding results even with a pandemic or political conflict in our neighborhood
Crew change and repatriation now require skillful juggling of transit regulations, airline and port restrictions, health bureaucracy and new visa norms. Without the right expertise, it can be mission impossible
When crew logistics are thrown out of gear, costs and budget are always the worst casualties. Dealing with unforeseen disruption and delay can pose long-term continuity issues for fleet ops. We anticipate the challenges to crew change in high-risk situations and provide secure transit routes, sanitized bubbles, and immigration assistance for individual and group crew movement. At Navmar, we factor in last-minute contingencies and back-up options, while putting together crew change protocol for each vessel, depending on its trading zone. Our global mobility services ensure smooth and seamless crew transfer at reasonable costs primarily because of the meticulous and painstaking planning that goes into these. We understand time is critical in the management of large volume crew movement and our mobility solutions are designed to ensure reliability in crew rotation.
SHIP & SHORE MOBILITY
Shipping faces a perpetual shortage of qualified staff. Managing the demands of a growing fleet means deploying navigation officers, engineers, superintendents, executives and managers in multiple locations. Our mobility professionals take care of relocation and familiarization assistance including immigration, house-hunting, tenancy, remuneration, health and social security, and work permits.
Crew procurement channels are tenuous and vulnerable to changes in the global situation. Many countries still don’t accord key worker status to seafarers. Our mission is to embed certainty in the transfer of shipboard personnel by working with specialists who can provide alternatives and options that make crew repatriation possible.
Navmar promotes a pro-active cadet induction policy with the aim of protecting our clients from the persistent crew shortages and officer migrations that affect our business. Seafarers are prone to mass migration towards better opportunities. Cadets are our most important component of ensuring continuity in shipboard operations and inculcating lifelong dedication to the fleet and the owner.
Navmar ensures a smooth flow of qualified seafarers with rank and fleet experience to fit all types of vessels by deploying a robust selection procedure responsive to the cost and operational considerations of clients. Such practices allow a competitive edge and a greater degree of certainty in fleet operations.
As requirements change and new regulations come into play, seafarers need to be prepared for continuous upskilling. Our goal is a lifelong learning programme for our crew in which knowledge and skill receive equal weightage. We are committed to providing our people with every opportunity to pursue personal growth.
Health & Wellbeing
In the post-pandemic world, crew health goes beyond pre-embarkation health-check. Assuring crew of 24/7 emergency healthcare, hospitalisation and preventive healthcare (such as vaccines) are just as important. Moreover, these facilities should be available in spite of movement restrictions hurriedly imposed by the nearest shore administration.
Effective planning saves time and expense that can otherwise drain client resources. An early advocate of the network-centric approach to planning, Navmar employs state-of-the-art tools in all aspects of crew selection, deployment, administration and management, allowing a large number of users to collaborate and make informed decisions.
