Crew Rotation

In the maritime and offshore industries, crew rotation is one of the most important responsibilities of a crew manager.

Organising personnel from across the world to converge on a vessel at the right time and with the right mix of skills and competencies, it is literally like trying to hit a moving target. Crew managers are required to maintain a logistical overview of all the moving parts and, much of the time, deploy people in very challenging locations.

Last-minute changes to travel plans, delays, and shifting requirements, crew rotation involves specialist skills and high levels of flexibility. The logistics of crew rotation require around-the-clock support to ensure that vessels are manned correctly. The consequences of failure to provide the right crew are costly delays and hefty fines.
