Complete Crew Management

  • Crew Pay, Employment & Certification
  • Deployment & Travel Solutions
  • Welfare, HR & Support

We aim to make the life of a ship operator as easy as possible by delivering a professional, cost-effective, robust and personal service in crew management.

With client driven teams providing continuity, expertise, knowledge and a focus on efficiency we have been leading the way for over 30 years in crew management.

Our experience and methodology in this area is built on those 30 years of success in serving our clients by providing full crew management including document and certification management, travel deployment, STCW training and payroll and employment services.

Today, more so than ever, Viking Crew is ideally positioned to be your partner in being able to fully support the delivery and crew management of OBS agency crew employed to work within the fleet. This is founded on the established and dependable capability of the Viking Maritime Group in finding the right people to place in the right positions, and in doing so providing ongoing crew management whilst these seafarers are employed.

Our Success

Part of our successful approach is understanding how each company has slightly different requirements, and we take the time and trouble to discuss each client’s exact needs, to ensure that the service provided is of the highest quality and value.
