Operations

Besides the ‘technical’ support, there is also strong ‘operational’ support for the captain and his crew. Transporting cargo is the core business of the vessels in our fleet. The employees of the Department Operations have a supporting role to the crew. Determine the quantity of cargo, problems with quality of cargo and damage during loading and unloading are an example of issues in which the employees of operations play a supporting and coordinating role. Also support on nautical issues (supply charts, providing weather information) is a task of the operations staff. Last but certainly not least their role is the responsibility for the safety equipment on board. Under the motto ‘safety first’ responsibility is taken for the annual maintenance of safety equipment.
