Marlow Navigation Netherlands B.V. provides crew management to Dutch clients having vessels under Dutch and foreign flag. At present Marlow Navigation Netherlands has approximately 600 crew members on board clients’ vessels. These vessels are operated world wide and vary in a range of dry cargo vessels, cellular vessels and chemical tankers.
Services rendered to our clients are on a lump sum basis. The total amount depends on factors such as crew nationality, trading area, the type of union cover, crew complement and special requirements by owners. All crew related expenses, such as travel expenses, insurance premiums, flag state documents, Union contributions, payroll services etc are included in the crew management contract.
All crew members employed by the Marlow group (in total more than 10.000 at any time on board) are recruited using the network of coordinated and controlled offices. Applicants, current and ex-crew, are carefully screened by former seafaring staff, to ensure that only qualified and properly STCW certified crew are accepted into the Marlow employment pool. The worldwide subsidiaries also ensure a close link to the crew employed by Marlow and they deal with any problems, needs and requests of our seafaring personnel.
Our clients have access to all the details of the crew board their vessels. Marlow has established an online customer access where owners and managers can review details such as crew lists, crew certification, crew performance and scheduled crew changes. The permanently accessible online database is a close link to crew and vessel and has become an important tool for the fulfilment of ISM requirements of our clients.
