Ships office and work behind the scenes

Every vessel has a shipping company. Based in the headquarters building of Randstad in Amsterdam we have a team of office workers arranging all the processes for keeping the operation running smoothly. There are logistical managers, 3 sales managers, a human resource manager, and the company’s director. They make sure that sailing schedules and catering arrangements are made. They hire employees and arrange their flights and certificates. They keep track of finance or plan supplies to the ship. The ship relies on its 24-hour support and is continuously in contact with the office for updates or changes in the operation both ways.  

Next to our own office ashore there are other agencies and persons associated with the ship to back our operation. From ICT to technical support and from international shipping law to safety-related certificates and insurance companies. 

When we speak of a team effort; it extends beyond the deck of the Stad Amsterdam.
