SEAFARERS MANAGEMENT - RECRUITMENT AND TRAINING

  1. Supply Sources Of Officers And Ratings, Crew Agencies, Fleet has established their own manning offices at Mumbai, Delhi, Kochi, Kolkata, Chennai and Vizag in India. In Philippines also we have established our own crewing office in December 1997. This company is called Fleet Management Services Philippines Inc. (FMSPI). We have also established a crewing office in Dalian, China. This company is called Gold Fleet Shipping Co. Ltd. Fleet recognizes the importance of having our own crewing source which has led to establishing our own offices in India, Philippines and China. The majority of our crewing requirements are fulfilled from India, where we invest funds for the training and upgradation of sea going staff. Over 70 pct of our staff is recruited from India.
  2. Recruiting System, Crew Selections: The officers and crew are selected on the basis of their competency, experience, good health and their conduct record. Under our policies, only those officers/crew who fulfill IMO STCW criteria are employed. This is achieved by an appraisal system.
  3. Training Or Briefing Before Embarkation: Training System For Employed Seafarers: We have our own training institute in Mumbai where we conduct short term refresher and familiarization courses for our officers, engineers and crew. Additionally, while on board, films / videos are shown and backed up by technical demonstrations and lectures. We have over 200 cadets in our service at any given time who are trained onboard to become officers in future. Cadets are required to undergo presea training of 12 weeks ashore prior to joining ships

    For the benefit of sailing staff and providing high quality training exercise, Fleet has also installed in its training institute at Nerul, Mumbai, a full-mission ship manoeuvring simulator with a field vision of 180 degrees and engine control room simulator, costing over half a million US dollars, far exceeding the international standards. Fleet is committed to employing well trained and quality sea going staff on all managed vessels.

  4. Crew Evaluation System And Personal Record: We maintain a very comprehensive personal record of our officers and crew (both in files and computers). The crew is evaluated by the head of the department and Master on board at 6 monthly intervals and also by the superintendents during the routine inspections.
  5. Policies Of Crews Safety And Health: Company policy is to give highest priority to the safety and health of crew on board vessels. Regular safety meetings are held on board in which importance of safety is emphasized.
  6. Alcohol/Drug Abuse Policy: Fleet has in force a policy for ensuring that the abuse of alcohol and drugs does not occur on board the ships.

MAINTENANCE

  1. Maintenance Standard
    We have advanced computerized Planned Maintenance Systems such as AMOS-D, AMOS-W, TM-Master and our in-house developed PARIS PMS system on most of our vessels. The remaining ships have a manual card system. The above systems enable us to provide a shipowner with an efficient and reliable maintenance system which is highly cost effective. Our policy is to keep very high standard of maintenance onboard all our ships.
  2. Analysis Of Ship's Condition
    The vessel condition is closely analysed using our Computerised Vessel Monitoring System through the following reports from the vessels:
    1. Noon Reports, giving various machinery parameters twice a week while at sea.
    2. Daily Position Reports
    3. Work done reports - Weekly.
    4. Arrival-Departure messages.
    5. Voyage abstracts.
    6. Monthly L.O. reports.
    7. Quarterly Reports. Additionally we have routine report forms which ship sends monthly by mail.
    8. M/E Performance Reports.
    9. Cargo Gear Performance Reports.
    10. Monthly Technical Reports.
  3. Evaluation And Recording System Of Ship's Condition:
    The above reports are monitored at regular intervals when they arrive in the office. Any deficiencies and non-compliance are immediately attended to, so as to ensure that the vessel performance is satisfactory and that the vessel is in well maintained state and is complying at all times with IMO and Classification Societies rules and regulations.

Superintendents inspect each vessel at 3 monthly intervals and prepare an exhaustive inspection report, describing action required to attend various matters. Copies of reports are left with Master and Chief Engineer. This report forms an important tool in the follow-up of ship. The inspection reports are sent to Owners to keep them abreast of vessel’s maintenance and condition.
