Crew Management - MSI Ship Management Pte Ltd

MSI manages a pool of over 2,500 seafarers of which 1,500 are at sea at any one time. We recruit seafarers through our own network of fully owned Company Manning Offices (CMO) and third party crewing agents.

We perform stringent checks to verify the employment history, certification and medical records of all applicants. These seafarers go through a rigorous selection process to ensure that only the most qualified and experienced seafarers are admitted as part of our team.

The value of MSI crew pool is enhanced on a continuous basis by our in-house training department which offers a broad range of courses and a well-established cadetship programme to ensure that all client needs and statutory requirements are fully met.
