Crew Management


No maritime vessel can operate effectively without maintaining a reliable, high quality crew. Finding and retaining the right staff is one of the most important aspects of any ship management.

FMS is a specialist and preferred supplier when it comes to crew management. A crew management agreement with FMS will relieve you from the following duties:

  • Employment interviews
  • Rotation planning
  • Travel arrangements and insurance
  • Employment contracts
  • Letters of guarantee
  • VISA applications
  • Information to agents
  • Vaccinations and health certificates
  • Applicable and additional training courses
  • Work clothes and safety footwear
  • Government refunds (i.e. illness)
  • Handling of first unemployment days
  • Overtime payment
  • Holiday account

FMS works with agencies worldwide. Because of this we can quickly place workforce on board and we will handle all associated paper work.
