Crewing

Long term crewing relations is not just towards external parties. We believe that staff that feel cared about will do a better job and more likely stay on-board with us. Happy crew and happy ships is also likely to be well maintained on budget.

The crew management includes retention rate objectives, intelligent ways of building crew cooperation teams and efficient systems for follow up and training. 

From our office in Gothenburg we are managing the crewing on the  Swedish flagged vessels and our subsidiary, GoTa Shipping OÜ in Tallinn, is managing the crewing on the vessels under all other flags. GoTa Shipping was founded already 1992 and has since then build a large bank of motivated seafarers, most of them from the Baltic countries and Russia. The retention rate is very low which demonstrates that the crews are well satisfied with their employment. All managed vessels are covered by approved collective bargain agreements and GoTa is a member of IMEC.
