Crew Management

Crew management encompasses a broad range of activities covering the recruitment and selection, deployment, training, crew costs monitoring and ongoing management of the officers and ratings engaged on vessels under our management.

ITM manages its marine assets by focusing on quality and building up highly competent, motivated and loyal seagoing staff to man its ships. ITM recruits crew through owned and appointed network of agencies that is spread across the globe in all major crewing markets. This network extends to 30 offices located in the countries from which seafarers are recruited. These include The Philippines, India, Russia, Latvia and the Ukraine, as the primary sources.

Crew can be supplied for all ship types including crude oil tankers of all sizes, product and chemical tankers, bulk carriers, container ships and off-shore vessels.

ITM has one of best seafarer retention rates in the industry. This is achieved through having proper recruitment, remuneration, continual training and performance appraisal systems in place.

ITM organizes two Crew Seminars every year in Dubai involving intense knowledge sharing forums including in house speakers and inviting experts from outside. The seminar also provides opportunity for the crew to mingle with each other and the shore based staff.
